Burning Cane
First screened in October 2019
Director: Phillip Youmans. Cast: Karen Kaia Livers, Wendell Pierce, Dominique McClellan, Braelyn Kelly, Emyri Crutchfield, Cynthia Capers, Erika Woods. Screenplay: Phillip Youmans.

Twitter Capsule: From its first frames, pushes the boundaries of story structure and film grammar. Dead-serious eye on its characters.

VOR:   Theme isn't as original as form, though Youmans's bravery with montage and with verbal and visual languages go a long way to making you not care.
