Director M. Legend Brown takes on the issue of family homelessness in his debut feature film “Hiding in Plain Sight.”
‘Hiding in Plain Sight’ is the story of Darius (Kelly O’Neil Jackson) and Josey Blackmon (Sharice Henry-Chasi) a couple in their 30s struggling to keep their family safe after their fall from the middle-class forces them, and their two children to live in their car.
Darius’ once unshakeable faith, in himself and God, is beginning to fall apart. Life on the street, the struggle to find work, the constant pressures of keeping the kids in school- and the authorities from separating the family- are taking their toll. The film features the beloved, Irma P. Hall (Changing the Game, Harry’s Law, Soul Food) as Grandma Ida Blackmon.
M. Legend Brown-Poorchild Films has joined forces with producers Kelly Gray (Mahogany Films) and Sharice Henry-Chasi (Higher Heights Film Works), Marty Ezelle (Fear Not Productions), and Michael and Judy Ciancio (Electric Light & Power Company).
The film was shot, in entirety on the streets of Dallas, Texas. One percent of the film’s proceeds will be donated to the fight to end homelessness.
The red carpet premiere, and black-tie fundraiser, hosted by actor Alimi Ballard (Fast Five, Numb3rs) September 8th, 2012 in Dallas, TX!
