A A man reunites with his estranged, transgender parent as they journey to scatter his late mother’s ashes off the Georgia coast.
“Landlocked” marks the feature film debut of transgender actress, Delia Kropp, in the lead role of Briana.
I am haunted by the paradox of life in the American South. Being Southern involves reconciling both pride and shame. You are born, inheriting a dark and complicated past.
The South is changing.
My vision as a filmmaker is consumed by exposing the possibilities we possess to reshape our story in the South. While I lament the broken aspects of the culture I am a part of, I am attuned to the reality of hope and rejuvenation. I believe human stories of change and growth can help usher us into a future not marked by division but one of restoration.
