  • TALK TO YOU GENTLEMEN ABOUT THE FILM.
  • 00:01:48.100 --> 00:01:50.230
  • BUT FIRST, LET'S ROLL IN THE TRAILER AND SEE A
  • 00:01:50.250 --> 00:01:53.120
  • LITTLE BIT OF WHAT NEVER HEARD IS ALL ABOUT.
  • 00:01:53.140 --> 00:01:56.280
  • - I KNOW THAT I'M SOMEWHERE BETWEEN A
  • 00:01:58.200 --> 00:01:59.200
  • CATERPILLAR AND A BUTTERFLY.
  • 00:01:59.220 --> 00:02:01.080
  • - I'VE MADE SOME BAD DECISIONS IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:02:01.100 --> 00:02:03.220
  • SOME WRONG TURNS.
  • 00:02:03.240 --> 00:02:05.190
  • - IT SAYS WHATEVER YOU ASK IN PRAYER.
  • 00:02:05.210 --> 00:02:09.180
  • - IF YOU DON'T HAVE THAT MONEY BY TOMORROW.
  • 00:02:09.200 --> 00:02:12.060
  • - YOU WILL RECEIVE.
  • 00:02:12.080 --> 00:02:13.280
  • IF YOU HAVE FAITH.
  • 00:02:14.000 --> 00:02:15.230
  • - POW.
  • 00:02:15.250 --> 00:02:16.210
  • - GO TO CHURCH.
  • 00:02:16.230 --> 00:02:19.070
  • YOU KNOW WHAT YOU NEED TO DO.
  • 00:02:19.090 --> 00:02:20.230
  • LET US PRAY.
  • 00:02:20.250 --> 00:02:22.020
  • THANK YOU JESUS.
  • 00:02:22.040 --> 00:02:23.190
  • - YOU PROBABLY ALREADY KNOW THIS, BUT 85% OF
  • 00:02:23.210 --> 00:02:27.160
  • OUR MEN IN PRISON COME FROM HOMES WITH
  • 00:02:27.180 --> 00:02:30.010
  • NO FATHER.
  • 00:02:30.030 --> 00:02:31.080
  • - HAVE YOU SPENT MUCH TIME WITH YOUR DAD?
  • 00:02:31.100 --> 00:02:32.180
  • - I DON'T REALLY KNOW HIM.
  • 00:02:32.200 --> 00:02:34.230
  • - AARON CALLED THE CRIB AND TOLD MY MOM I'D BE
  • 00:02:34.250 --> 00:02:37.170
  • COMING OUT SOON.
  • 00:02:37.190 --> 00:02:38.210
  • - SO YOU'RE RIGHT, DIG.
  • 00:02:38.230 --> 00:02:39.290
  • I DON'T KNOW YOU, BUT WHAT I DO KNOW IS THAT
  • 00:02:40.010 --> 00:02:42.200
  • HATRED KILLS, MAN.
  • 00:02:42.220 --> 00:02:44.050
  • IT'S A DISEASE.
  • 00:02:44.070 --> 00:02:45.240
  • - LORD, I KNOW YOU SEE JALEN.
  • 00:02:45.260 --> 00:02:49.000
  • - BOY, YOU KNOW YOU HEAR ME TALKING TO YOU.
  • 00:02:49.020 --> 00:02:50.200
  • - YEAH, MA.
  • 00:02:50.220 --> 00:02:51.190
  • - I NEED YOU TO INTERVENE.
  • 00:02:51.210 --> 00:02:53.180
  • - I CAN GET YOU SOME HELP.
  • 00:02:53.200 --> 00:02:55.080
  • WE STILL NEED YOU.
  • 00:02:55.100 --> 00:02:56.290
  • - DO WHATEVER YOU HAVE TO DO, LORD, TO GET HIM
  • 00:02:57.010 --> 00:03:01.000
  • OFF THOSE STREETS.
  • 00:03:01.020 --> 00:03:02.180
  • - THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD HAS DRAWN YOU INTO
  • 00:03:02.200 --> 00:03:05.220
  • THIS PLACE.
  • 00:03:05.240 --> 00:03:07.100
  • YOU'RE JUST LIKE THE PERSON I PREACHED ABOUT.
  • 00:03:07.120 --> 00:03:08.270
  • YOU'RE IN TRANSITION, BUT GOD SAID I'M HERE TO TAKE
  • 00:03:08.290 --> 00:03:11.250
  • YOUR LIFE AND TURN EVERYTHING AROUND.
  • 00:03:11.270 --> 00:03:14.100
  • WHATEVER YOU'VE DONE, WHATEVER YOU'VE BEEN
  • 00:03:14.120 --> 00:03:16.200
  • THROUGH, GOD SAID IF YOU'LL JUST COME AND GIVE
  • 00:03:16.220 --> 00:03:18.160
  • YOUR LIFE TO ME, I WILL CHANGE IT.
  • 00:03:18.180 --> 00:03:21.080
  • - AMEN.
  • 00:03:21.100 --> 00:03:22.190
  • - ALL: AMEN.
  • 00:03:22.210 --> 00:03:23.230
  • - YOU EITHER KILL HIM OR YOU DON'T.
  • 00:03:23.250 --> 00:03:25.180
  • - LET'S GO, MAN.
  • 00:03:25.200 --> 00:03:26.140
  • LET'S GO!
  • 00:03:26.160 --> 00:03:27.190
  • - SO ANY TIME THE DEVIL TELLS ME I'M NOT
  • 00:03:27.210 --> 00:03:29.240
  • SOMETHING, I ALWAYS SAY I AM THAT.
  • 00:03:29.260 --> 00:03:33.000
  • - WHERE ARE THEY?
  • 00:03:33.020 --> 00:03:34.050
  • WHERE ARE THEY?
  • 00:03:34.070 --> 00:03:35.120
  • - THEY SAID THEY WERE GOING TO KILL JALEN.
  • 00:03:35.140 --> 00:03:36.010
  • I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:03:36.030 --> 00:03:36.190
  • - JUST GO.
  • 00:03:36.210 --> 00:03:37.140
  • GO.
  • 00:03:37.160 --> 00:03:38.210
  • - ANY TIME THE DEVIL TELLS ME I AM SOMETHING,
  • 00:03:38.230 --> 00:03:39.270
  • I ALWAYS SAY I AM NOT THAT.
  • 00:03:39.290 --> 00:03:42.030
  • - OH, I HAVE TO PRAY ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:03:42.050 --> 00:03:44.010
  • - IF YOU CALL ON HIM, HE'LL HELP YOU.
  • 00:03:44.030 --> 00:03:48.280
  • IF YOU CALL ON HIM, HE'S A PRESENT HELP IN THE
  • 00:03:49.000 --> 00:03:51.100
  • TIME OF TROUBLE.
  • 00:03:51.120 --> 00:03:52.200
  • - JUST ONE THING I REGRET MOST.
  • 00:03:52.220 --> 00:03:54.280
  • I NEVER HEARD MY FATHER SPEAK.
  • 00:03:55.000 --> 00:04:02.030
  • - WOW.
  • 00:04:02.050 --> 00:04:03.090
  • THAT'S VERY SPECIAL.
  • 00:04:03.110 --> 00:04:05.010
  • DIJON, WHAT'S YOUR ROLE IN THE FILM.
  • 00:04:05.030 --> 00:04:07.090
  • - DIJON TALTON: I PLAYED DIGGY.
  • 00:04:07.110 --> 00:04:08.200
  • HE'S ONE OF THE THREE LEAD CHARACTERS.
  • 00:04:08.220 --> 00:04:10.270
  • THE FILM KIND OF SHOWS THREE DIFFERENT
  • 00:04:10.290 --> 00:04:13.010
  • PERSPECTIVES OF HOW A TEENAGER INTERACTS WITH
  • 00:04:13.030 --> 00:04:15.140
  • THEIR FATHER, WHAT LEVEL OF INTERACTION THEY HAVE
  • 00:04:15.160 --> 00:04:18.010
  • AND HOW IT KIND OF PLACES HIM IN THEIR LIFE TODAY.
  • 00:04:18.030 --> 00:04:20.180
  • DIGGY IS A KID TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT.
  • 00:04:20.200 --> 00:04:23.180
  • HE'S NEVER MET HIS FATHER.
  • 00:04:23.200 --> 00:04:24.220
  • HE'S IN JAIL, SO HE'S TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:04:24.240 --> 00:04:26.130
  • INCARCERATION AND HOW THAT AFFECTS FAMILIES.
  • 00:04:26.150 --> 00:04:28.230
  • HE'S HAD TO RISE TO THE OCCASION TO BE THE MAN.
  • 00:04:28.250 --> 00:04:31.240
  • HIS MOM IS ON DRUGS.
  • 00:04:31.260 --> 00:04:33.160
  • HE HAS A BROTHER.
  • 00:04:33.180 --> 00:04:35.170
  • SO HE HAS TO LEARN THOSE LIFE LESSONS WITHOUT
  • 00:04:35.190 --> 00:04:39.060
  • HAVING THE FOUNDATION OF GOD OR A FATHER.
  • 00:04:39.080 --> 00:04:42.210
  • OFTEN TIMES IN MY LIFE THE FIRST GOD I SAW WAS
  • 00:04:42.230 --> 00:04:44.250
  • MY FATHER, HOW GOD LOVED ME WAS DEMONSTRATED FROM
  • 00:04:44.270 --> 00:04:48.110
  • MY FATHER, SO HE DIDN'T HAVE THAT EXAMPLE SO HE'S
  • 00:04:48.130 --> 00:04:50.170
  • TRYING TO FIND THAT IN THE STREETS AND FIND THAT
  • 00:04:50.190 --> 00:04:52.230
  • IN A WAY TO ALSO PROVIDE FOR HIS FAMILY.
  • 00:04:52.250 --> 00:04:54.170
  • HE'S JUST FIGURING IT OUT.
  • 00:04:54.190 --> 00:04:55.260
  • - UH-HUH.
  • 00:04:55.280 --> 00:04:57.040
  • WHEN A ROLE LIKE THIS COMES YOUR WAY, HOW DO
  • 00:04:57.060 --> 00:04:59.080
  • YOU PREPARE OR HOW DO YOU GET READY FOR SOMETHING
  • 00:04:59.100 --> 00:05:02.010
  • LIKE THIS?
  • 00:05:02.030 --> 00:05:03.080
  • - IT WAS SUCH A DIFFERENT ROLE FROM MY
  • 00:05:03.100 --> 00:05:05.060
  • EXPERIENCE THAT I HAD, BUT I DEFINITELY TAPPED
  • 00:05:05.080 --> 00:05:07.150
  • INTO SOME OF THE EXPERIENCES I'VE SEEN
  • 00:05:07.170 --> 00:05:09.030
  • IN MY FAMILY.
  • 00:05:09.050 --> 00:05:10.100
  • WE DEFINITELY DEALT WITH, YOU KNOW, NOT HAVING THE
  • 00:05:10.120 --> 00:05:14.180
  • BEST EXPERIENCE OR THE BEST EXAMPLES AND HAVING
  • 00:05:14.200 --> 00:05:16.180
  • TO RISE TO THE OCCASION.
  • 00:05:16.200 --> 00:05:18.060
  • AND IT WAS A SLICE OF LIFE THAT I GOT TO LIKE
  • 00:05:18.080 --> 00:05:20.250
  • SINK MY TEETH INTO AND BREATHE LIFE INTO.
  • 00:05:20.270 --> 00:05:22.250
  • I'M JUST COUNTING IT AS A BLESSING AND A CHALLENGE
  • 00:05:22.270 --> 00:05:25.120
  • TO NOT JUDGE A CHARACTER OR CIRCUMSTANCE BUT TO
  • 00:05:25.140 --> 00:05:29.200
  • ALLOW IT TO ELEVATE MY PERSPECTIVE.
  • 00:05:29.220 --> 00:05:32.020
  • - UH-HUH.
  • 00:05:32.040 --> 00:05:33.080
  • DO YOU THINK THAT FAMILIES SHOULD SEE THIS
  • 00:05:33.100 --> 00:05:37.010
  • FILM TOGETHER?
  • 00:05:37.030 --> 00:05:38.190
  • OR DO YOU RECOMMEND JUST TEENAGERS GOING AND SEE IT?
  • 00:05:38.210 --> 00:05:43.170
  • - NO, I DEFINITELY THINK IT'S BOTH.
  • 00:05:43.190 --> 00:05:44.260
  • I THINK IT'S A COMING OF AGE STORIES FOR TEENAGERS
  • 00:05:44.280 --> 00:05:46.220
  • BUT I ALSO THINK IT IS A FAMILY DRAMA THAT
  • 00:05:46.240 --> 00:05:49.280
  • BREATHES AND SHINES A LIGHT ON THE TRUTH OF THE
  • 00:05:50.000 --> 00:05:52.220
  • CIRCUMSTANCES AND SITUATIONS THAT WE FIND
  • 00:05:52.240 --> 00:05:56.110
  • OURSELVES IN.
  • 00:05:56.130 --> 00:05:57.190
  • YOU CAN SEE FROM MULTI PERSPECTIVES WHAT IT
  • 00:05:57.210 --> 00:05:59.210
  • MEANS TO HAVE A FATHER AND NOT HAVE ONE OR TO
  • 00:05:59.230 --> 00:06:01.180
  • HAVE A STRONG GRANDMOTHER OR FOR THE MOTHER TO BE
  • 00:06:01.200 --> 00:06:03.280
  • THE BACKBONE, AND HOW THAT CHANGES ONE'S
  • 00:06:04.000 --> 00:06:06.000
  • TRAJECTORY OR CHANGES ONE'S REALITY.
  • 00:06:06.020 --> 00:06:08.130
  • WE OCCUPY THE LIFE BASED OFF OF WHERE WE ARE.
  • 00:06:08.150 --> 00:06:11.240
  • AND AS FAR AS THINGS CAN GO IN WHAT WE'VE SEEN.
  • 00:06:11.260 --> 00:06:14.150
  • SO I THINK FAMILIES WILL GO AND HAVE CONVERSATIONS OF
  • 00:06:14.170 --> 00:06:19.060
  • LIKE AUTHENTICITY AND GROWTH AND HONESTY.
  • 00:06:19.080 --> 00:06:21.200
  • AND WE DO IT IN A WAY THAT KIND OF CHALLENGES
  • 00:06:21.220 --> 00:06:23.130
  • YOU TO THINK ABOUT IT DIFFERENTLY.
  • 00:06:23.150 --> 00:06:24.230
  • - BRIAN, AS AN ACTOR AND A PRODUCER, HOW DID YOU
  • 00:06:24.250 --> 00:06:30.260
  • GET INVOLVED IN THIS FILM PARTICULARLY AS A PRODUCER
  • 00:06:30.280 --> 00:06:34.100
  • AND PLAYING ONE OF THE ROLES?
  • 00:06:34.120 --> 00:06:37.140
  • - BRIAN WHITE: JOSH WEBER, JOSH WEBER, JOSH WEBER.
  • 00:06:37.160 --> 00:06:39.120
  • HE'S A PARTNER OF MINE, A VISIONARY DIRECTOR.
  • 00:06:39.140 --> 00:06:41.260
  • GREAT FRIEND, GREAT CREATIVE MIND.
  • 00:06:41.280 --> 00:06:44.230
  • AND HE CAME TO ME ONE DAY AND SAID I WANT TO MAKE A
  • 00:06:44.250 --> 00:06:47.170
  • FAITH BASED STORY ABOUT FATHERS, AND MY FATHER
  • 00:06:47.190 --> 00:06:49.210
  • JOE WHITE JUST PASSED THIS JANUARY.
  • 00:06:49.230 --> 00:06:55.220
  • - I'M SORRY TO HEAR THAT.
  • 00:06:55.240 --> 00:06:56.290
  • - THANK YOU.
  • 00:06:57.010 --> 00:06:58.010
  • THANK YOU.
  • 00:06:58.030 --> 00:06:59.080
  • AND ONE OF THE THINGS MY DAD LOVED THE LORD WAS
  • 00:06:59.100 --> 00:07:01.050
  • HIS FATHER WAS A PASTOR.
  • 00:07:01.070 --> 00:07:02.110
  • MY COUSIN IS A PASTOR.
  • 00:07:02.130 --> 00:07:04.050
  • MY UNCLE IS A PASTOR.
  • 00:07:04.070 --> 00:07:06.180
  • AND MY CONNECTION WITH JOSH AND OUR FATHERS IS
  • 00:07:06.200 --> 00:07:12.020
  • THE THING THAT LED ME TO WANT TO DO THIS.
  • 00:07:12.040 --> 00:07:14.100
  • I ALWAYS HEAR MY FATHER SPEAK.
  • 00:07:14.120 --> 00:07:16.030
  • EVERY NIGHT BEFORE I GO TO BED, EVERY MORNING
  • 00:07:16.050 --> 00:07:18.160
  • WHEN I WAKE UP AND I LOOK AT MY WIFE REMINDING ME
  • 00:07:18.180 --> 00:07:21.070
  • OF THE DAY THAT I HEARD HIS VOICE SAY DON'T LET
  • 00:07:21.090 --> 00:07:23.020
  • THAT WOMAN GO.
  • 00:07:23.040 --> 00:07:24.160
  • I MEAN, ALL THE BIG CHOICES I MADE IN MY LIFE
  • 00:07:24.180 --> 00:07:26.040
  • HAVE COME WITH MY FATHER'S VOICE IN THE
  • 00:07:26.060 --> 00:07:29.160
  • BACK OF MY HEAD WHETHER HE WAS HERE OR NOT.
  • 00:07:29.180 --> 00:07:31.170
  • AND I DIDN'T GROW UP WITH MY FATHER.
  • 00:07:31.190 --> 00:07:33.200
  • MY PARENTS WERE DIVORCED WHEN I WAS 4 BUT HE'S
  • 00:07:33.220 --> 00:07:35.130
  • ALWAYS BEEN A ROLE MODEL AND MENTOR AND FRIEND AND
  • 00:07:35.150 --> 00:07:37.290
  • HIS VOICE IS ALWAYS BEEN WITH ME.
  • 00:07:38.010 --> 00:07:40.110
  • I WANTED TO LIVE UP TO -I WANTED TO MAKE HIM PROUD.
  • 00:07:40.130 --> 00:07:42.200
  • AND WHEN JOSH TOLD ME ABOUT THIS MOVIE AND THAT
  • 00:07:42.220 --> 00:07:47.070
  • IT WAS GOING TO BE FROM THREE DIFFERENT
  • 00:07:47.090 --> 00:07:49.110
  • PERSPECTIVES AND THAT WE WEREN'T GOING TO
  • 00:07:49.130 --> 00:07:51.040
  • VILLAINIZE ANY ONE OF THE MEN IN THIS MOVIE, I FELL
  • 00:07:51.060 --> 00:07:53.030
  • IN LOVE WITH THE IDEA OF CREATING A PLATFORM FOR
  • 00:07:53.050 --> 00:07:55.130
  • PEOPLE LIKE DIJON, LIKE DAVID BANNER WHO I'VE
  • 00:07:55.150 --> 00:07:58.190
  • HOSTED COLLEGE TOURS WITH TO BE ABLE TO PUT OUT
  • 00:07:58.210 --> 00:08:01.060
  • THAT KIND OF WORK, ROMEO, TO BE ABLE TO THEN GO
  • 00:08:01.080 --> 00:08:04.090
  • SPEAK ON IT BECAUSE THESE ARE ALL STRONG FATHERS.
  • 00:08:04.110 --> 00:08:06.100
  • THESE ARE ALL -- IS A GREAT FATHER.
  • 00:08:06.120 --> 00:08:09.110
  • I'VE BEEN DEALING WITH HIM AND ROMEO AND THE
  • 00:08:09.130 --> 00:08:10.170
  • MOTHER FOR YEARS.
  • 00:08:10.190 --> 00:08:12.050
  • I'M SO IMPRESSED BY THEIR FAMILY, AND WHY PEOPLE
  • 00:08:12.070 --> 00:08:14.290
  • HAVE SUCCESS ISN'T A MYSTERY.
  • 00:08:15.010 --> 00:08:16.260
  • ROMEO HAS HIS DAD'S VOICE IN HIS HEAD AS HE GOES
  • 00:08:16.280 --> 00:08:19.110
  • OUT ABOUT HIS JOURNEY AND IT CREATES SUCCESS FOR
  • 00:08:19.130 --> 00:08:21.110
  • THEIR ENTIRE BRAND, AND I WANTED TO PUT OUT A MOVIE
  • 00:08:21.130 --> 00:08:23.160
  • THAT HELPS PEOPLE TO SEE HOW IT ALL WORKS.
  • 00:08:23.180 --> 00:08:25.140
  • - SO THE NUMBERS OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN MEN WHO
  • 00:08:25.160 --> 00:08:27.190
  • ARE INCARCERATED CERTAINLY CHANGES THE
  • 00:08:27.210 --> 00:08:31.140
  • SCOPE AND THE SPAN OF HOW THOSE POSITIVE IMAGES CAN
  • 00:08:31.160 --> 00:08:37.290
  • COME INTO A YOUNG MAN'S MIND.
  • 00:08:38.010 --> 00:08:40.150
  • YOU BOTH HAD STRONG FATHER FIGURES WHO WERE PRESENT IN
  • 00:08:40.170 --> 00:08:44.050
  • YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:08:44.070 --> 00:08:45.110
  • TOO MANY OF THOSE AFRICAN AMERICAN MALES
  • 00:08:45.130 --> 00:08:47.150
  • ARE INCARCERATED, AND THIS FILM TALKS ABOUT THE
  • 00:08:47.170 --> 00:08:51.150
  • TROUBLES THAT COULD HAPPEN AS WELL AS WHAT
  • 00:08:51.170 --> 00:08:55.080
  • DOES HAPPEN IN THE FILM.
  • 00:08:55.100 --> 00:08:58.020
  • THERE'S A LITTLE ROMANCE GOING ON IN THE FILM AS WELL.
  • 00:08:58.040 --> 00:09:02.010
  • I'D LIKE TO ROLL IN JALEN AND PARIS HAVING
  • 00:09:02.030 --> 00:09:06.050
  • A LITTLE CONVERSATION ON THE BENCH.
  • 00:09:06.070 --> 00:09:08.190
  • - SO... HOW WAS YOUR DAY?
  • 00:09:14.180 --> 00:09:16.280
  • - NO ONE EVER REALLY ASKS ME THAT.
  • 00:09:21.280 --> 00:09:25.150
  • IT FEELS NICE.
  • 00:09:25.170 --> 00:09:26.230
  • - REALLY?
  • 00:09:26.250 --> 00:09:28.020
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:09:28.040 --> 00:09:29.280
  • - WELL, I PROMISE TO ASK YOU HOW YOUR DAY GOES
  • 00:09:30.260 --> 00:09:35.190
  • EVERY TIME I SEE YOU.
  • 00:09:35.210 --> 00:09:37.120
  • - REALLY?
  • 00:09:37.140 --> 00:09:38.200
  • DOES THAT MEAN YOU'RE GONNA BE SEEING ME A LOT?
  • 00:09:38.220 --> 00:09:40.140
  • - IT DEPENDS.
  • 00:09:40.160 --> 00:09:42.170
  • - DEPENDS ON WHAT?
  • 00:09:42.190 --> 00:09:44.100
  • - IF WE COULD MEET HERE SOMETIMES AFTER SCHOOL.
  • 00:09:44.120 --> 00:09:47.290
  • I'LL TELL YOU ABOUT MY DAY
  • 00:09:48.010 --> 00:09:49.140
  • AND YOU TELL ME ABOUT YOURS.
  • 00:09:49.160 --> 00:09:51.230
  • - I LIKE THAT.
  • 00:09:52.140 --> 00:09:53.180
  • I'M COOL WITH THAT.
  • 00:09:53.200 --> 00:09:55.100
  • DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHER CHICKS I BE MESSIN' WITH.
  • 00:09:57.040 --> 00:10:01.080
  • - EXCUSE ME?
  • 00:10:01.100 --> 00:10:03.040
  • - NO, THAT CAME--
  • 00:10:03.060 --> 00:10:04.140
  • - CHICKS LAY EGGS, JALEN.
  • 00:10:04.160 --> 00:10:07.030
  • YOU COULDN'T FIND A DIFFERENT WORD
  • 00:10:07.050 --> 00:10:08.170
  • TO DESCRIBE A FEMALE?
  • 00:10:08.190 --> 00:10:10.170
  • THAT'S HOW YOU SEE ME? A CHICK?
  • 00:10:10.190 --> 00:10:13.100
  • AND WHO SAYS THAT WE'RE MESSING WITH EACH OTHER?
  • 00:10:13.120 --> 00:10:15.280
  • - I DIDN'T MEAN TO SAY IT LIKE THAT.
  • 00:10:16.000 --> 00:10:17.070
  • - IS THAT ALL YOU WANT?
  • 00:10:17.090 --> 00:10:18.180
  • [STUTTERING]
  • 00:10:18.200 --> 00:10:20.250
  • [LAUGHING]
  • 00:10:20.270 --> 00:10:23.220
  • GOT YOU!
  • 00:10:23.240 --> 00:10:25.070
  • - OH, MAN!
  • 00:10:25.090 --> 00:10:27.060
  • I HAD A MINI HEART ATTACK RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:10:27.080 --> 00:10:29.000
  • - I CAN TELL.
  • 00:10:29.020 --> 00:10:30.060
  • - MY GOODNESS!
  • 00:10:30.080 --> 00:10:31.170
  • YOU'RE FUNNY.
  • 00:10:31.190 --> 00:10:33.100
  • I LIKE IT THOUGH.
  • 00:10:33.120 --> 00:10:35.210
  • RIVERS RUN DEEP WITH YOU.
  • 00:10:36.170 --> 00:10:38.270
  • COME ON, WE SHOULD BE GETTING BACK TO THE CHURCH.
  • 00:10:42.000 --> 00:10:44.220
  • - HOW ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:10:47.020 --> 00:10:49.000
  • FASCINATING SCENE.
  • 00:10:49.020 --> 00:10:50.090
  • IT MADE ME SMILE AND LAUGH OUT LOUD.
  • 00:10:50.110 --> 00:10:53.140
  • IT'S THAT KIND OF QUALITY OF PERFORMANCE THAT
  • 00:10:53.160 --> 00:10:55.270
  • MAKES A FILM ENDEARING TO ITS AUDIENCE.
  • 00:10:55.290 --> 00:11:00.170
  • DID YOU FIND THAT WHEN YOU WATCH IT SOME OF
  • 00:11:00.190 --> 00:11:03.190
  • THOSE MOMENTS TOUCHED YOU AS WELL?
  • 00:11:03.210 --> 00:11:05.110
  • - ABSOLUTELY. IT'S A SLICE OF LIFE WATCHING THE WHOLE FILM.
  • 00:11:05.130 --> 00:11:07.280
  • OUR YOUNG LEADS ARE EFFERVESCENT.
  • 00:11:08.000 --> 00:11:09.220
  • THEY'RE EXTREMELY TALENTED.
  • 00:11:09.240 --> 00:11:11.100
  • I'VE WORKED WITH KARRUECHE BEFORE THAT.
  • 00:11:11.120 --> 00:11:12.170
  • IT WAS KARRUECHE TRAN AND ROMEO IN THAT SCENE.
  • 00:11:12.190 --> 00:11:14.240
  • BEEN A FAN OF YOURS SINCE GLEE.
  • 00:11:14.260 --> 00:11:16.260
  • AND IT'S BEEN A JOY TO WATCH THESE YOUNG STARS
  • 00:11:16.280 --> 00:11:21.080
  • SHINE IN THIS MOVIE BECAUSE IT'S REALLY ALL
  • 00:11:21.100 --> 00:11:22.220
  • ABOUT THEM, AND THE EFFECTS OF VARIOUS LEVELS
  • 00:11:22.240 --> 00:11:26.110
  • OF PARENTING ON THE KIDS.
  • 00:11:26.130 --> 00:11:28.120
  • THEY'VE JUST DONE A BRILLIANT JOB SETTING THE
  • 00:11:28.140 --> 00:11:30.080
  • TABLE FOR US TO DISCUSS, YOU KNOW, WHAT PARENTING
  • 00:11:30.100 --> 00:11:32.120
  • IS ALL ABOUT AND HOW IMPORTANT IT IS.
  • 00:11:32.140 --> 00:11:34.050
  • - YES.
  • 00:11:34.070 --> 00:11:36.020
  • BRIAN, WE'VE SEEN YOU ON SCANDAL, WE'VE SEEN YOU
  • 00:11:36.040 --> 00:11:38.000
  • ON SUITS, WE'VE SEEN YOU ON A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT
  • 00:11:38.020 --> 00:11:40.180
  • SHOWS RECURRING AND THAT'S A WONDERFUL THING.
  • 00:11:40.200 --> 00:11:45.110
  • SO HOW DOES MAKING THIS FILM COMPARE TO THAT
  • 00:11:45.130 --> 00:11:49.060
  • SORT OF WORK THAT YOU DO ALL THE TIME?
  • 00:11:49.080 --> 00:11:51.210
  • - USUALLY I'M A GUN FOR HIRE, AND THAT'S
  • 00:11:51.230 --> 00:11:53.180
  • WONDERFUL. IT'S FULFILLING.
  • 00:11:53.200 --> 00:11:56.000
  • I GET TO SHOW UP AND THEN PLAY AS AN ACTOR.
  • 00:11:56.020 --> 00:11:58.140
  • THIS, LIKE I SAID, JOSH CALLED ME AND IT WAS MORE
  • 00:11:58.160 --> 00:12:01.140
  • OF A CREATIVE DISCUSSION.
  • 00:12:01.160 --> 00:12:03.050
  • I GOT TO GIVE MY TWO CENTS.
  • 00:12:03.070 --> 00:12:05.020
  • I GOT TO GIVE AN OPINION ON THE MATERIAL.
  • 00:12:05.040 --> 00:12:07.100
  • I GOT TO GIVE AN OPINION ON SOME OF
  • 00:12:07.120 --> 00:12:08.240
  • THE CASTING CHOICES.
  • 00:12:08.260 --> 00:12:11.230
  • AND IT WAS MUCH MORE EVEN MORE GRATIFYING THAT WAY
  • 00:12:11.250 --> 00:12:15.050
  • TO BE ABLE TO PUT MY THUMBPRINT ON IT A
  • 00:12:15.070 --> 00:12:18.120
  • LITTLE BIT MORE THAN JUST AS AN ACTOR.
  • 00:12:18.140 --> 00:12:20.190
  • IT'S WHERE I HOPE TO MOVE TOWARDS MORE
  • 00:12:20.210 --> 00:12:23.120
  • AND MORE IN MY CAREER.
  • 00:12:23.140 --> 00:12:24.290
  • - WOW.
  • 00:12:25.010 --> 00:12:26.200
  • I ASK YOU THAT FOR A SPECIFIC PURPOSE BECAUSE

  • I HAPPEN TO KNOW THAT THERE'S A WONDERFUL SCENE
  • 00:12:29.240 --> 00:12:32.160
  • WITH YOU PLAYING THE DEFENSE ATTORNEY.
  • 00:12:32.180 --> 00:12:35.110
  • WHAT'S THE CHARACTER'S NAME?
  • 00:12:35.130 --> 00:12:36.100

  • - IT'S MY SECOND TIME WORKING WITH HIM.
  • 00:15:40.100 --> 00:15:41.190
  • HE PLAYED, WE PLAYED POLITICAL ADVERSARIES
  • 00:15:41.210 --> 00:15:44.090
  • IN A PRIOR INDIE. HE'S WONDERFUL.
  • 00:15:44.110 --> 00:15:47.000
  • I'VE BEEN A FAN OF HIS SINCE DREAM ON.
  • 00:15:47.020 --> 00:15:48.280
  • AND YES, I'VE BEEN WATCHING HIM FOR YEARS
  • 00:15:49.000 --> 00:15:50.290
  • AND IT'S AN HONOR TO WORK WITH HIM.
  • 00:15:51.010 --> 00:15:52.160
  • - WELL, I'VE GOT TO-- I'D BE RETICENT IF I
  • 00:15:52.180 --> 00:15:55.200
  • DIDN'T MENTION THE FACT THAT YOU AND I WERE ON
  • 00:15:55.220 --> 00:15:57.280
  • TOUR WITH WHAT MY HUSBAND DOESN'T KNOW FOR SIX
  • 00:15:58.000 --> 00:16:01.060
  • MONTHS TOGETHER. GREAT WORKING WITH YOU, BUDDY!
  • 00:16:01.080 --> 00:16:03.110
  • - ABSOLUTELY!
  • 00:16:03.130 --> 00:16:04.200
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE ON THAT SHOW, TIFFANY HADDISH.
  • 00:16:04.220 --> 00:16:06.040
  • - TIFFANY HADDISH.
  • 00:16:06.060 --> 00:16:07.090
  • - MICHELLE WILLIAMS.
  • 00:16:07.110 --> 00:16:08.180
  • - AND MICHELLE WILLIAMS. AND BLESSED THE
  • 00:16:08.200 --> 00:16:11.130
  • CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY.
  • 00:16:11.150 --> 00:16:13.030
  • - MISS NESBY.
  • 00:16:13.050 --> 00:16:14.140
  • - YES, THAT'S RIGHT. ANN NESBY. WOW.
  • 00:16:14.160 --> 00:16:16.270
  • HOW DO YOU THINK, THIS QUESTION IS FOR BOTH OF
  • 00:16:16.290 --> 00:16:20.120
  • YOU, HOW DO YOU THINK THAT JESUS AND THE POWER
  • 00:16:20.140 --> 00:16:22.200
  • OF PRAYER FACTORS IN TO THIS FILM?
  • 00:16:22.220 --> 00:16:26.140
  • DOES IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE OR WILL IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
  • 00:16:26.160 --> 00:16:30.140
  • - I THINK IT MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:16:30.160 --> 00:16:31.210
  • I FEEL LIKE OR KNOW THAT JESUS IS THE CENTER OF
  • 00:16:31.230 --> 00:16:34.080
  • THIS MOVIE AND HOW THE POWER OF PRAYER
  • 00:16:34.100 --> 00:16:36.220
  • CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING.
  • 00:16:36.240 --> 00:16:38.250
  • I THINK THESE CHARACTERS ARE ON THIS JOURNEY OF
  • 00:16:38.270 --> 00:16:41.270
  • SELF-DISCOVERY AS TEENAGERS TO FIND CHRIST
  • 00:16:41.290 --> 00:16:44.050
  • AND TO FIND WHAT THAT MEANS TO YOU RATHER THAN
  • 00:16:44.070 --> 00:16:46.100
  • IN TODAY'S DAY AND AGE.
  • 00:16:46.120 --> 00:16:48.060
  • I KNOW ALL OF OUR PARENTS HAVE MODELED WHAT
  • 00:16:48.080 --> 00:16:50.070
  • CHRISTIANITY LOOKS LIKE FOR US, BUT OUR
  • 00:16:50.090 --> 00:16:53.260
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST IS A PERSONAL THING.
  • 00:16:53.280 --> 00:16:55.190
  • IT CAN BE RELIGIOUS OR WE CAN BE SPIRITUAL, AND I
  • 00:16:55.210 --> 00:16:58.020
  • THINK THIS MOVIE ALLOWS US TO MEET OUR CHILDREN
  • 00:16:58.040 --> 00:17:01.150
  • WHERE THEY'RE AT AND TO WALK WITH THEM THROUGH
  • 00:17:01.170 --> 00:17:03.250
  • THESE JOURNEYS OF TRIALS AND ERRORS AND FAILURES
  • 00:17:03.270 --> 00:17:06.260
  • AND TO LET THEM KNOW THAT WE CAN PICK THEM BACK UP
  • 00:17:06.280 --> 00:17:09.070
  • AND THAT GOD IS THERE WAITING TO WRAP THEM IN
  • 00:17:09.090 --> 00:17:11.230
  • HIS ARMS THAT LOVE AND GRACE THAT BOUNDS BEYOND
  • 00:17:11.250 --> 00:17:13.250
  • THE FAILURE OR BEYOND WHAT SOCIETY TELLS THEM.
  • 00:17:13.270 --> 00:17:17.020
  • SO I THINK IT DEFINITELY IS THE CORNERSTONE.
  • 00:17:17.040 --> 00:17:19.290
  • THIS MOVIE IS REALLY ABOUT JESUS LOVE
  • 00:17:20.010 --> 00:17:21.220
  • AND HOW IT SAVES.
  • 00:17:21.240 --> 00:17:23.040
  • - OH, THAT'S WELL PUT. WELL SAID.
  • 00:17:23.060 --> 00:17:25.130
  • BRIAN, WHAT DO YOU THINK IN TERMS OF CHRIST
  • 00:17:25.150 --> 00:17:27.270
  • INTERTWINING IN THIS STORY AND IN THE CHARACTERS?
  • 00:17:27.290 --> 00:17:30.210
  • - I MEAN, IN EVERYDAY LIFE AND IN THIS MOVIE,
  • 00:17:30.230 --> 00:17:32.260
  • I THINK WE SEE AND WE LEARN THAT CHRIST IS EVERYTHING.
  • 00:17:32.280 --> 00:17:34.270
  • IT BEGINS AND ENDS WITH UNDERSTANDING OUR OWN
  • 00:17:34.290 --> 00:17:37.020
  • HUMBLE CIRCUMSTANCES.
  • 00:17:37.040 --> 00:17:39.030
  • WE ARE NOT ALL POWERFUL.
  • 00:17:39.050 --> 00:17:40.270
  • THE LORD ALMIGHTY IS ALL POWERFUL.
  • 00:17:40.290 --> 00:17:42.120
  • AND ONCE WE ACCEPT AND EMBRACE THAT AND ASK FOR
  • 00:17:42.140 --> 00:17:45.110
  • THAT HELP, THAT'S WHEN IT ARRIVES.
  • 00:17:45.130 --> 00:17:48.090
  • AND I THINK EACH ONE OF OUR CHARACTERS IN A
  • 00:17:48.110 --> 00:17:49.250
  • DIFFERENT WAY DISCOVERS THAT IN THE MOVIE AND
  • 00:17:49.270 --> 00:17:52.260
  • SURRENDERS TO THE GREATER POWER, AND IN THE MOMENT
  • 00:17:52.280 --> 00:17:55.260
  • THAT THEY DO, EVERYTHING TURNS AROUND.
  • 00:17:55.280 --> 00:17:57.220
  • AND I THINK THAT'S THE OVERALL MESSAGE.
  • 00:17:57.240 --> 00:18:00.130
  • - WHY DO YOU THINK FAITH-BASED FILMS ARE
  • 00:18:00.150 --> 00:18:02.030
  • CATCHING ON AND THEY'RE CROSSING OVER, IF YOU WILL?
  • 00:18:02.050 --> 00:18:05.040
  • LIKE WAR ROOM CROSSED OVER TO A BROADER BASED AUDIENCE.
  • 00:18:05.060 --> 00:18:07.200
  • - THE WAY THEY'RE BEING DIRECTED.
  • 00:18:07.220 --> 00:18:09.140
  • JOSHUA WEBBER HAS MADE A FILM THAT IF WE DIDN'T
  • 00:18:09.160 --> 00:18:13.020
  • HAVE THE CLIPS WITH THE PASTORS IN HERE, YOU
  • 00:18:13.040 --> 00:18:15.240
  • WOULDN'T KNOW IT WAS A FAITH-BASED MOVIE UNTIL
  • 00:18:15.260 --> 00:18:17.200
  • YOU SAW THE WHOLE AGGREGATE FILM.
  • 00:18:17.220 --> 00:18:19.150
  • AND I THINK THAT'S THE NEW THING THAT THESE
  • 00:18:19.170 --> 00:18:22.100
  • DIRECTORS -- JOSHUA WEBBER, RYAN COOGLER
  • 00:18:22.120 --> 00:18:25.060
  • HASN'T MADE A FAITH-BASED FILM, BUT THEY'RE MAKING
  • 00:18:25.080 --> 00:18:27.100
  • GRITTY, REAL, TANGIBLE, VISCERAL, PALPABLE FILMS.
  • 00:18:27.120 --> 00:18:29.040
  • THESE KIDS FEEL LIKE, LOOK LIKE, A SLICE OF
  • 00:18:29.060 --> 00:18:31.100
  • LIFE OUT THEIR DAILY JOURNEY.
  • 00:18:31.120 --> 00:18:33.080
  • WE'RE SEEING GUNS. WE'RE SEEING DRUGS.
  • 00:18:33.100 --> 00:18:34.290
  • WE'RE SEEING KANDI BURRUSS WHO'S PLAYING THE
  • 00:18:35.010 --> 00:18:37.170
  • HECK OUT OF AN ADDICTIVE MOTHER.
  • 00:18:37.190 --> 00:18:39.200
  • SO WE'RE SEEING STUFF THAT THESE KIDS ACTUALLY SEE.
  • 00:18:39.220 --> 00:18:41.100
  • IT FEELS LIKE A DOCUMENTARY TO THEM, BUT
  • 00:18:41.120 --> 00:18:43.010
  • IT LEADS TO THE CHURCH.
  • 00:18:43.030 --> 00:18:44.180
  • THERE'S A BIBLE ON THE TABLE, AND IT MAKES
  • 00:18:44.200 --> 00:18:46.000
  • SENSE TO THEM.
  • 00:18:46.020 --> 00:18:47.150
  • THEY'RE ALSO HEARING THAT AT HOME, BUT THEY'RE NOT
  • 00:18:47.170 --> 00:18:49.050
  • PUTTING THOSE MESSAGES TOGETHER IN ONE COHESIVE
  • 00:18:49.070 --> 00:18:50.230
  • STORY, AND THAT'S WHAT PEOPLE LIKE JOSHUA
  • 00:18:50.250 --> 00:18:52.060
  • WEBBER ARE BRINGING TO THE TABLE.
  • 00:18:52.080 --> 00:18:53.270
  • WHEN YOU READ THESE SCRIPTS, YOU'RE LIKE
  • 00:18:53.290 --> 00:18:55.060
  • I CONNECT WITH THIS.
  • 00:18:55.080 --> 00:18:56.180
  • I'VE SEEN MY OWN LIFE, MY SISTER'S LIVES, MY
  • 00:18:56.200 --> 00:18:57.270
  • FRIEND'S LIVES IN THIS, MY FRIENDS THAT ARE
  • 00:18:57.290 --> 00:18:59.280
  • PARENTS IN THIS.
  • 00:19:00.020 --> 00:19:01.110
  • PEOPLE ARE GOING TO CONNECT WITH THIS, AND
  • 00:19:01.130 --> 00:19:02.210
  • THAT'S WHAT'S CHANGING.
  • 00:19:02.230 --> 00:19:04.030
  • - I'VE TALKED TO ACTORS, PERFORMERS, CELEBRITIES
  • 00:19:04.050 --> 00:19:07.100
  • WITH WHOM I HAVE POSITIVE RELATIONSHIPS WHO WOULD
  • 00:19:07.120 --> 00:19:11.110
  • RATHER NOT DEAL WITH THE STORY ABOUT DRUGS AGAIN,
  • 00:19:11.130 --> 00:19:16.190
  • ABOUT A KID GOING BAD OR ABOUT THE FATHER THAT'S
  • 00:19:16.210 --> 00:19:21.100
  • NOT IN THE ROOM OR IN THE HOME, AND IT TROUBLED ME
  • 00:19:21.120 --> 00:19:25.200
  • THAT THEY DIDN'T WANT TO TELL THOSE STORIES
  • 00:19:25.220 --> 00:19:28.290
  • BECAUSE, AS YOU'VE SUGGESTED, THAT IS THE
  • 00:19:29.010 --> 00:19:32.120
  • STORY FOR A LOT OF THESE YOUNG PEOPLE, ISN'T IT?
  • 00:19:32.140 --> 00:19:35.080
  • - LOOK AT THE STREETS OF LA WHERE IT'S FENTANYL,
  • 00:19:35.100 --> 00:19:38.290
  • WHICH IS A LEGAL DRUG, RIGHT?
  • 00:19:39.010 --> 00:19:40.210
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE ADDICTION RATES ARE GOING
  • 00:19:40.230 --> 00:19:43.000
  • ON, AND IT DOESN'T MATTER ABOUT THE COMMUNITY.
  • 00:19:43.020 --> 00:19:44.210
  • WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT URBAN COMMUNITY.
  • 00:19:44.230 --> 00:19:46.040
  • IN AMERICA -- THE ADDICTION RATES IN
  • 00:19:46.060 --> 00:19:47.120
  • CALIFORNIA, JUST DRIVE THROUGH THE CITY.
  • 00:19:47.140 --> 00:19:49.000
  • YOU'LL SEE PEOPLE ALL OVER THE PLACE.
  • 00:19:49.020 --> 00:19:50.220
  • WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:19:50.240 --> 00:19:52.080
  • WE NEED MORE STORIES ABOUT IT. THE PROBLEM IS GETTING BIGGER.
  • 00:19:52.100 --> 00:19:53.170
  • THE COMPLEXION OF WHO'S SUFFERING IS CHANGING,
  • 00:19:53.190 --> 00:19:57.060
  • BUT THAT'S WHY WE GOT CHERYL BRADY, WE'VE GOT
  • 00:19:57.080 --> 00:20:01.160
  • BLACK, WHITE, PASTORS OF ALL RACES BANDING
  • 00:20:01.180 --> 00:20:03.220
  • TOGETHER TO WAKE PEOPLE UP AND REALIZE WE HAVE TO
  • 00:20:03.240 --> 00:20:06.060
  • COME TOGETHER. WE HAVE TO SURRENDER.
  • 00:20:06.080 --> 00:20:08.060
  • WE HAVE TO ALL LOOK IN THE SAME DIRECTION SO WE
  • 00:20:08.080 --> 00:20:09.240
  • CAN SOLVE THINGS.
  • 00:20:09.260 --> 00:20:11.190
  • - WOW, I THINK THAT'S A GREAT SEGWAY TO SHARE
  • 00:20:11.210 --> 00:20:14.130
  • ANOTHER CLIP FROM THE FILM WHERE THE
  • 00:20:14.150 --> 00:20:16.160
  • GRANDMOTHER IS PRAYING.
  • 00:20:16.180 --> 00:20:18.160
  • - AMEN.
  • 00:20:18.180 --> 00:20:20.140
  • - LORD...
  • 00:20:21.210 --> 00:20:24.210
  • I KNOW YOU SEE JALEN, AND I NEED YOU TO INTERVENE.
  • 00:20:24.230 --> 00:20:30.070
  • [THUNDER]
  • 00:20:30.090 --> 00:20:34.030
  • I NEED YOU, LORD, TO INTERVENE.
  • 00:20:34.050 --> 00:20:37.090
  • [RUMBLING]
  • 00:20:37.110 --> 00:20:40.060
  • DO WHATEVER YOU HAVE TO DO, LORD.
  • 00:20:40.080 --> 00:20:43.260
  • TAKE HIM OFF THOSE STREETS, LORD.
  • 00:20:43.280 --> 00:20:46.250
  • [GUNSHOT]
  • 00:20:46.270 --> 00:20:48.270
  • I'M TRUSTING YOU, LORD.
  • 00:20:48.290 --> 00:20:52.020
  • AND DEVIL...
  • 00:20:52.040 --> 00:20:54.160
  • I SERVE YOU NOTICE.
  • 00:20:54.180 --> 00:20:58.000
  • LET HIM LOOSE!
  • 00:20:58.020 --> 00:21:00.150
  • HE'S THE LORD'S VESSEL.
  • 00:21:00.170 --> 00:21:04.070
  • IN JESUS' NAME, AMEN, AMEN, AMEN.
  • 00:21:04.090 --> 00:21:14.170
  • - AMEN.
  • 00:21:14.190 --> 00:21:15.290
  • - WOW, THAT'S POWERFUL.
  • 00:21:16.010 --> 00:21:18.010
  • THAT IS MOVING, VERY TOUCHING PIECE OF THE FILM.
  • 00:21:18.030 --> 00:21:23.010
  • I SAW RECENTLY A POSTER.
  • 00:21:23.030 --> 00:21:25.290
  • I LIKED IT SO MUCH, MY WIFE WENT AND GOT IT FOR ME.
  • 00:21:26.010 --> 00:21:28.280
  • IT SAID "DON'T WORRY ABOUT TOMORROW.
  • 00:21:29.000 --> 00:21:32.170
  • GOD IS ALREADY THERE."
  • 00:21:32.190 --> 00:21:34.070
  • - AMEN. - AMEN.
  • 00:21:34.090 --> 00:21:35.240
  • - AND I THINK THAT'S KIND OF MESSAGE THAT GRANDMA HAS.
  • 00:21:35.260 --> 00:21:40.020
  • SHE KNOWS THAT THERE'S POWER IN PRAYER AND THAT
  • 00:21:40.040 --> 00:21:43.120
  • GOD ANSWERS PRAYER IN THE AFFIRMATIVE, AND SO A
  • 00:21:43.140 --> 00:21:48.060
  • SCENE LIKE THAT IS SOMETHING THAT REALLY
  • 00:21:48.080 --> 00:21:51.210
  • TOUCHES ME, AND I HOPE THAT IT WILL TOUGH THE
  • 00:21:51.230 --> 00:21:54.260
  • BROADER AUDIENCE, AS WELL.
  • 00:21:54.280 --> 00:21:56.160
  • - MAKES ME THINK OF MY GRABBED MOTHER SAYING YOU
  • 00:21:56.180 --> 00:21:58.050
  • MIGHT NOT ALWAYS BE ABLE IT SEE THE WHOLE
  • 00:21:58.070 --> 00:21:59.230
  • STAIRCASE, BUT YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT THE NEXT
  • 00:21:59.250 --> 00:22:01.250
  • STEP IS THERE AND KEEP STEPPING AND HAVE THE
  • 00:22:01.270 --> 00:22:04.060
  • COURAGE TO KEEP STEPPING, AND THAT'S IT.
  • 00:22:04.080 --> 00:22:06.160
  • - THAT'S WONDERFUL, THAT'S WONDERFUL.
  • 00:22:06.180 --> 00:22:08.110
  • DID YOUR GRANDMOTHER SHARE SOMETHING WITH YOU?
  • 00:22:08.130 --> 00:22:11.150
  • - MY GRANDMOTHER WAS PRAYING WOMAN.
  • 00:22:11.170 --> 00:22:12.290
  • SHE WOULD SPEND EVERY DAY IN THE CHURCH.
  • 00:22:13.010 --> 00:22:14.150
  • WE WERE FORCED TO BE THERE.
  • 00:22:14.170 --> 00:22:15.280
  • BUT I THINK THAT YEAH, I THINK THAT WE'RE ALL HERE
  • 00:22:16.000 --> 00:22:19.110
  • BECAUSE OUR GRANDMOTHERS WERE PRAYING FOR
  • 00:22:19.130 --> 00:22:20.240
  • US AND OUR PARENTS WERE PRAYING FOR US AND THE
  • 00:22:20.260 --> 00:22:22.260
  • POWER OF THAT COVERING ALLOWED US TO BE BLESSED
  • 00:22:22.280 --> 00:22:24.250
  • TO SEE THIS DAY AND TO BE ABLE TO BRING SOME ART
  • 00:22:24.270 --> 00:22:26.250
  • THAT IS AUTHENTIC AND REAL AND CONNECTS.
  • 00:22:26.270 --> 00:22:30.140
  • AND THE COOL THING ABOUT OUR MOVIE IS WE AREN'T
  • 00:22:30.160 --> 00:22:32.230
  • PLAYING STEREOTYPES.
  • 00:22:32.250 --> 00:22:34.130
  • THESE KIDS AREN'T GROWING UP WANTING TO BE GANG
  • 00:22:34.150 --> 00:22:36.090
  • BANGERS AND DRUG DEALERS.
  • 00:22:36.110 --> 00:22:38.030
  • CIRCUMSTANCES REQUIRE THEM TO SURVIVE, AND WHEN
  • 00:22:38.050 --> 00:22:39.290
  • YOU SEE THE STRUGGLE OF HAVING NO OTHER CHOICE,
  • 00:22:40.010 --> 00:22:42.130
  • WHAT APPEARS TO BE NO OTHER CHOICE, MIXED WITH
  • 00:22:42.150 --> 00:22:44.250
  • THE POWER OF GOD, YOU NOW ALLOW THEM TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:22:44.270 --> 00:22:47.080
  • THAT ELEVATION IS POSSIBLE WHEN SOMEONE
  • 00:22:47.100 --> 00:22:49.080
  • ELSE TOLD ME IT WASN'T, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:22:49.100 --> 00:22:51.070
  • WHEN GOD STEPS IN AND SHOWS YOU THAT STEP WHEN
  • 00:22:51.090 --> 00:22:53.290
  • NO ONE ELSE TOLD YOU IT COULD BE THERE, THAT'S
  • 00:22:54.010 --> 00:22:56.030
  • WHAT OUR FILM IS SHOWING YOU OF THE SO IT'S COOL
  • 00:22:56.050 --> 00:22:58.170

  • ABLE TO BE LIKE, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:23:00.090 --> 00:23:01.200
  • IF YOU'RE COOL, YOU CONNECT, BUT YOU BELIEVE
  • 00:23:01.220 --> 00:23:03.060
  • IN GOD VERSUS BEING THE OPPOSITE.
  • 00:23:03.080 --> 00:23:06.080
  • - TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE TITLE "NEVER HEARD".
  • 00:23:06.100 --> 00:23:09.230
  • IS THAT A SHORTENED VERSION?
  • 00:23:09.250 --> 00:23:13.120
  • - "NEVER HEARD MY FATHER SPEAK" IS THE FULL TITLE.
  • 00:23:13.140 --> 00:23:15.110
  • "I NEVER HEARD MY FATHER SPEAK," AND IT'S ABOUT THE
  • 00:23:15.130 --> 00:23:17.260
  • INFLUENCE OF PARENTS AND ROLE MODELS.
  • 00:23:17.280 --> 00:23:19.120
  • AND AGAIN, THERE'S THREE STORIES, AND WE HAVE
  • 00:23:19.140 --> 00:23:21.170
  • VARYING LEVELS OF INFLUENCE, CONTEXT AND
  • 00:23:21.190 --> 00:23:23.170
  • WE'RE DEMONSTRATING AND SHOWING HOW THAT CHANGES
  • 00:23:23.190 --> 00:23:26.090
  • A PERSON'S TRAJECTORY OR HOW IT AFFECTS THE
  • 00:23:26.110 --> 00:23:29.220
  • PERSON, THE CHILD. WE'VE BOTH SHARED A LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:23:29.240 --> 00:23:34.230
  • WE'VE HEARD OUR FATHER SPEAK. WE HEAR THAT ECHO.
  • 00:23:34.250 --> 00:23:36.120
  • IT'S AN INDELIBLE ECHO, AND IT AFFECTS ME EVERY
  • 00:23:36.140 --> 00:23:38.170
  • DAY IN EVERY DECISION I MAKE, AND THAT'S THE
  • 00:23:38.190 --> 00:23:40.050
  • POWER OF PARENTING.
  • 00:23:40.070 --> 00:23:42.130
  • THAT'S THE POWER OF ESPECIALLY MALE ROLE
  • 00:23:42.150 --> 00:23:44.100
  • MODELS. I HAVE A YOUNG DAUGHTER.
  • 00:23:44.120 --> 00:23:46.280
  • SHE'S FOUR, SHE'S ALMOST FIVE.
  • 00:23:47.000 --> 00:23:48.160
  • THE EFFECT THAT, AS A DAD, I HAVE ON MY

  • BOTH GRANDMOTHERS ARE LIKE -- MY DAD AND I ARE
  • 00:23:52.200 --> 00:23:56.020
  • SUPER CLOSE, BUT HE WASN'T IN THE HOUSE EVERY
  • 00:23:56.040 --> 00:23:57.230
  • DAY WHEN I WAS GROWING UP.
  • 00:23:57.250 --> 00:23:59.080
  • BEING IN THE HOUSE EVERY DAY, WHEN I COME HOME,
  • 00:23:59.100 --> 00:24:00.270
  • I GET THAT, "DADDY!"
  • 00:24:00.290 --> 00:24:02.150

  • JUST LIKE HER SAFE PLACE.
  • 00:24:04.030 --> 00:24:05.160
  • WITHOUT THAT, SHE'D HAVE ALL THE LOVE IN THE
  • 00:24:05.180 --> 00:24:07.170
  • WORLD, BUT IT WOULD BE A DIFFERENT LEVEL OF
  • 00:24:07.190 --> 00:24:09.240
  • CONTACT, AND IT WOULD AFFECT HER.
  • 00:24:09.260 --> 00:24:11.180
