MICHAEL | FREE THE TOWN, a feature film
Michael, Brooklyn born and bred, visits Africa for the first time since his hazy childhood to reunite with his powerful Sierra Leonean father. Romanticizing a man and a country, Michael quickly learns reality is never quite as sweet.
FREE THE TOWN interweaves 3 lives in Freetown, Sierra Leone. A native virgin runs from a past riddled with witch accusations, she collides with two strangers: a Brooklyn teen reuniting with his estranged African father and a myopic filmmaker relentlessly pursuing a story of African witch exorcisms. In a country struggling to progress, we discover the past often has an unshakeable grasp on the future. 90 mins.
