KNIGHT 7 PRODUCTIONS ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
A detective who lost everything that he loves. A gang member who was a product of the school to prison pipeline.
Two men from different sides of the law set out on a journey for revenge on a common enemy when they unknowingly run into each other.
They tackle the concept of forgiveness when they both realize the other is not who they seem to be.
This project is important to me because it unlike other revenge films it focuses on the idea of forgiveness and also touches on the school to prison pipeline.
I was inspired to do this film from seeing victims forgiving their assailants on the news, extreme cases, like mothers hugging the murderer of their son. It not only made me realize the strength of the person who forgave but also that everyone is capable of change if one truly desires to be a different, it only requires a second chance.
We don’t have to be held prisoner by our past mistakes. As a guidance counselor and an advisor for President Obama's My Brothers Keeper Initiative in my school in Southside Jamaica, Queens in New York, I know all too well the stories of children who were avoided by staff and neglected because of a mistake or the mistakes hey have made. Students given the harshest penalties at a young age without any real remediation or support. This results in them giving up because they see no way out. Believing that they are no better than their past.
What if we embraced forgiveness? Of others as well as ourselves? Gave people the opportunity to change in the present. Presented them with better options? I believe we could motivate the same people who are destined to give up to try again. Become better people, better citizens and and pay it forward through their stories.
