Before you get caught up in the rush of the big blockbusters, check out The Retrieval!
Directed by Rice University graduate Chris Eska and starring Houston's own Tishuan Scott, it's a powerful story set during the final days of the Civil War. A young boy is sent by a gang of bounty hunters to retrieve a former slave and bring him back to the South. Soon he has to make an unimaginable life-and-death decision.
It's been winning some well-deserved awards at film festivals across the country, including SXSW!
I had the pleasure of meeting Tishuan Scott. Check out my interview.
