This epic history-making indie film will be produced and directed by the only known award-winning, African-American Deaf filmmaker, Ann Marie “Jade” Bryan, who was the first deaf filmmaker to obtain a BFA degree in film production at New York University in 1993.
Jade, CEO of Jade Films and Entertainment commented: I am very thrilled yet humbled to have the opportunity to make “THE SHATTERED MIND,” my 2nd film touching on topics about the African-American Deaf Experience with Rosavetta Jackson as the lead role and Antilla Zulkifl, Jubil Khan, Reb Grant and Curtis Babers in supporting roles. All are powerful Deaf experienced actors, which I am very excited to be working with in this film. “THE SHATTERED MIND” is fresh, honest and most importantly will give viewers an in-depth look at the Deaf Black cultural experience; ingredients that we believe will give it significant international commercial appeal.
