When professors at Yale University request a private screening of your film, you know you did something right.
“20 Minutes” is a short film written and directed by G. Lloyd Morris and produced by his wife, Dawn Morris. Made with $20,000 that the Wilmington couple funded from their savings and credit cards, “20 Minutes” is captivating audiences at film festivals, schools—and prisons.
The film has been screened at the 2010 Martha’s Vineyard African-American Film Festival, the 2010 Atlantic City International Film and Music Festival and upon request to an audience of urban ethnology professors and students at Yale University. It has also been screened at Young Correctional Institution, the Ferris School, Grace/Snowden Cottage, Mowlds Cottage and other transitional houses and juvenile detention centers.
“20 Minutes” was shot at Third and Lombard, in and around Riverside and Rockford Park in the streets of Wilmington. But the story really begins in the streets of South Central Los Angeles, with G. Lloyd Morris.
