(BlackTree TV - Los Angeles) We had the honor of sitting down with Ms. Salli Richardson-Whitfield to talk about her new movie I Will Follow that will be in theaters this friday March 11. The movie which is a slice of life of a family dealing with tragedy when a close family member passes on. The movie, which is a bit of a personal tale by first time narrative filmmaker Ms. Ava Duvernay, has an all star cast and a compelling story.
I WILL FOLLOW is a quiet drama that explores the surprising thirst for life
we experience after the death of someone we love. Maye is a success. Hot career. Hot boyfriend. But when her world is turned upside down by family tragedy, she must struggle to maintain her balance. I WILL FOLLOW chronicles a day in the life of a woman at a crossroads, and the twelve visitors who help her move into a brave, new world.
