FORGIVENESS (25 min)

-- a short film written and directed by Satie Gossett-- is the story of a young African American boy who explores the brutal history of America’s role in slavery as the topic for his entry into a national essay contest issued by the President of the United States. President McGovern needs inspiration from the youth about how to fix America. Oliver Burroughs, learning about slavery in his class declares that the President needs to apologize so he submits his solution and enters his essay in the contest. Oliver learns about the profound impact of slavery on America and different perspectives from everyone in his life. Destiny lays a path for Oliver’s essay to win the President’s contest and now President McGovern has the task to fulfill this young man’s request to make a national apology for America’s involvement in slavery so healing in the nation can begin. “FORGIVENESS” is an allegory of innocence and redemption.
