Trouble in the Water Trailer (2007)

In this film, we get to know Gary Simmons. Although a proud African-American, over the years, he’s allowed the constant bombardment of negative cultural images and messages (from both within and outside his race) to gradually drag him down. Now, he struggles between the love he’s supposed to feel for his people and the alienating affect of their negative - and sometimes embarrassing - behavior and attitudes. Ironically, it’s during a chance meeting with another African-American that he’s inspired to transcend the negativity. Inspired by the author’s reflections on the Langston Hughes poem, My People.
