Torri Oats – August 17, 2015
There was no thought given to the date, August 9, when my director and I decided to meet for our first day of location scouting. It wasn’t until the day came that I realized its significance. One year ago on that day, Michael Brown was murdered. Two years ago on that day, my grandmother died. I wanted to cancel because everything felt so heavy, but the director and I planned this weeks ago, so it had to be done.
