Project Main Details

Underdog Short Film 
This will be for a powerful short film, dealing with race, class, and inner strength. There is a scene in the film with our hero, a teenage boy, an underdog on the football team, where he is sitting at the dinner table with his mother. She is speaking to him but we never see her face. I want to create a dialogue between the two to carry the rest of the film, as the two discuss overcoming fears, social and economic challenges, and persevering.

Script Details

Custom demo required 
Context: A conversation at the kitchen table in between two a day football practice. The mother (50-60 years old) is cleaning up and washing dishes. The young boy (17 years old) sits with fear and trepidation and a clear awareness of his surroundings, the cards stacked against him. The mother a strong southern African American woman realizes the weary heart of her son and speaks up to save him and generations to come.

Mother: Listen. This ain't about you boy. Everyone is watching out for themselves in this world nowadays and I didn't raise you that way. Are you listening?

Boy: Yes ma, Im just scared.

Mother: Look at me. About what?

Boy: He is faster than me.

Mother: Sweet child this fight is greater than you, than me, than any single individual and some petty competition. Here in your heart. You carry us. All of us. Your ancestors. Your father, me and your sister and the future generation to come. Many of us will never make it. Will never have the opportunity you have. Right now. So look that resistance in the face and with all you got, all you got.
Are you listening!

Boy: YES MA!

Mother: Run right through it, carry us, and don’t never look back. Now eat that food before it gets cold, people are starving.

Boy: I will ma. I will.
