February 12th – SMOKD has its World Premiere as part of the “Shorts Series 2” at the Pan African Film Festival (PAFF). As always, I was moved to support a woman at the helm, and was happy to score this short feature for the talented writer, director Tamika Miller. Tamika evoked compelling performances from her ensemble cast led by Alimi Ballard, Jerry O’Donnell and Angela Elayne Gibbs, brilliantly cast by Tracy ‘Twinkie’ Bird … The film is an exploration of the intimate debate amongst twelve grand jurors deciding whether or not to indict a white police office who has allegedly killed an African American man during an arrest.
