Harry Belafonte’s organization Sankofa.org teamed up with Christopher Renz and Gerard Bush, the duo behind the innovative creative agency, BushRenz, to direct Against the Wall, a short film depicting the current issues with police brutality.
Against the Wall serves as public service announcement featuring celebrities and other notable features such as Michael B. Jordan, Danny Glover, Michael K. Williams, Van Jones and Marc Lamont Hill.
“By using the faces of those we recognize, familiar faces, we look to re-sensitize the community to really see the problem. The artistic community is responding to the plight of our disenfranchised. We are shining a light and calling out to all to take a look, listen and feel within your heart to take action,” - Belafonte
Against the Wall is executive-produced by Raoul Roach, Gina Belafonte and Marvin Bing.
