The Way Everything Was

Two White men in sunglasses, one with a shirt off, stand before a green field outside on a sunny day.

This film will revisit a powerfully formative event in my life: being bullied daily in a racially-charged high school classroom nearly 4 decades ago.

With compassionate curiosity, the completed film will use my trauma as a starting point from which to explore the social ramifications of the long-term effects of bullying, in terms of racism, homophobia, and unequal access to education.
