Whether through documentary or comedy,

I will explore the human soul; and through film , I will capture it's essence.

The Cinematic Griot Collective is a network of filmmakers, artists, and creatives who create inspiring and unique culturally relevant works. We aim to reach beyond the surface with non-linear perspectives and creations. Traveling throughout forgotten communities, we bring to the forefront people and places that are often ignored.
