Down With Goliath Short Film, Audience FEEDBACK Oct. 2021 ANIMATION Festival
DOWN WITH GOLIATH, 3min., Animation
Directed by Ernetta D. Procter
In this animated short film against the backdrop of a 1990’s Chicago Southside, an adolescent (nameless) black girl is educated by her southern grandmother on the sacrifices that it takes to survive as a woman in their violent, crack infused environment. With her grandmother’s mobster-esque support and a sawed-off rifle in a Malboro duffle bag, she emerges victorious from the fight of her life, only to realize that the world was no longer a suitable opponent for a gladiator like her. Everything had become "Down With Goliath."
