Everyone comes to a point in their lives when they are forced to decide whether to continue down the road put before them, or to strike out in a different, unknown direction. This universal human experience is brilliantly examined in the touching feature film, Mississippi Damned. Set against a backdrop of the rural South, the story focuses on the lives of three young black siblings and their choice to either fight against the demons that have wreaked havoc on their extended family for years, or confront these issues and in so doing, break free. Poverty, infidelity, and abuse are all explored in a real and raw way that few films ever achieve.
The United Nations has stated that an estimated 21 million people worldwide are trafficked every year for a large variety of reasons. The majority of these individuals are women and children who are targeted for the expressed purpose of sexual exploitation.

“I like DVDs so much. It’s such a better format than VHS.”
America seems to have agreed with Roland, Hollywood heavyweight director of the Oscar-winning film, The Killing Fields, at least for a time. While everyone knows that DVD sales have been falling like a wet mattress since their 2007 peak at over $10 billion in annual revenue, things have slid so far that industry insiders now refuse to even make those figures public. For years, DVD sales predictions helped studios create realistic budgets, but the crash in popularity of this medium has driven studios to make safer and more predictable choices, such as sequals, franchises and reboots. The end result is a more bland cinematic experience for everyone and a far less creative environment for those who make films for a living.

As these brave young people wage a heroic battle against all types of illness, the parents must stand by and try to keep the children’s lives as normal and joyful as possible. One Hollywood celebrity has dedicated his time, energy and resources to make this struggle just a little bit easier.
There are times when the dire state of events around the world makes us want to collectively throw up our hands in abject resignation. Whether caused by war, famine, corruption, disease or any category of tragedy, the pain and suffering we see all too often can be overwhelming to the extreme. There are moments when it would seem so much easier to resign ourselves to grief or apathy, and like flipping a switch buried deep inside ourselves, simply give up hope. Filmmaker Chad Amour’s new video project suggests that, upon closer examination, there is in actuality much reason to do otherwise.
