    At one point, Trevor said the character’s name, Carter, and with his accent, I misheard it as “caught up.” Ironically, it still fit perfectly.

    There was a twilight zone episode, from the latest incarnation, that told the same story except it is a mother trying to change her son being shot. I presume this gentleman saw it ? It was really similar.

    I realized a few years ago that it was UNSAFE to drive around the country because of the COPS we have today. … So on the road I dress like little ol’man on permeant retirement. I’m acting and I think I get away with it because I’m not brown or yellow or black or red…… I KNOW THIS IS A FACT and I’m blessed because of it. IT is WRONG no matter what it’s wrong it’s wrong and people with POLICE that act in such a fashion should NOT BE POLICE. – m.

    Just reading the comments and listening to this interview I don’t think I will look at this movie. Sounds totally depressing and negative. Why cant moviemakers just ” turn the other cheek” and make uplifting movies, that people can really relate to?
    It would have been much more educational to make a “loopmovie”, where the “bad white cop” gets out of bed everyday and constantly falls in love with the black guy…just to name an example. Does the maker of this movie really think that repeating what is allready experienced daily by many or some, will let policemen/women act differently toward black or other colored people?
    I am from the Dutch Caribbean and I also allways wonder why all those black millionaires in the USA dont form a foundation or other to help uplift other black or colored people in need. If it can be done in South Africa by an American, I am sure it is also possible in the States. And if this is allready being done, my apologies.

    Wow I need to see this cuz based on what I’ve heard it’s thought provoking, it’s relatable and hopefully it will make a huge impact in society. It definitely deserves the Oscar for Best Writing and Best screenplay in a short film. It would be a snub otherwise

    I often wonder whether human tribalism will be defeated by the hybridization of the populace. When you cannot label another human being as “OTHER”, we may become more humane.

    Trevor can you interview Cariol Holloman-Horne from Buffalo? Her law mandates police officers to intervene when fellow officers are abusing citizens. She’s a former officer who got punched in her face by a fellow officer when he had a person in a choke hold. Then she loses her job for intervening!

    I watched it a couple of nights ago thinking it was gonna be a full length movie, some kinda sci-fi trip with a black protagonist. I’m glad that I started watching from that space because I feel like I was even more effected by it. The message was not subtle and I liked that. This film is so important right now. Thank you for making it!
