Sunday Short Movie: A Long Walk

You will probably not see a short film as moving or gripping as this for quite a while. This story is based on true events and focuses on an American neighborhood in the 1970s. It was written, produced and directed by the über talented Chinonye Chukwu.

A father humiliates his son by parading him through the streets in women's clothing in front of all the other kids on a summer day. The impact of that decision ripples through his family and best friend's lives for years to come.  The Long Walk is earnest and very clever film-making at its best with some standout performances, wonderfully evocative period detail and - just so you can't say you weren't warned - heartrendingly sad.
