“I’m so tired of being lowered down and mistreated because I’m Black!” 1091 Pics has released an official trailer for an indie American drama titled Through Her Eyes, marking the feature directorial debut of filmmakers Trenton Lumpkin. Set in the 1960s, this seems to be inspired by the story of Ruby Bridges, who was the very first African-American child to desegregate the all-white William Frantz Elementary School in Louisiana during the New Orleans school desegregation crisis on November 14, 1960. Rayven Ferrell stars in the film as Rosalee Winbush, a timid African-American student struggling with her decision to attend a newly integrated school while finding the courage to become the change she desires under extreme racial tensions. Also starring Angela Ray, Shawn Luckey, Michael Rodney, and Tony Demil. Worth a look.
Here’s the official trailer (+ poster) for Trenton Lumpkin’s Through Her Eyes, direct from YouTube:
