Synopsis: “Black Don’t Crack” is a satirical short film about a young Black man who must endure the micro aggressions of his co-workers. The film is a personal reflection of my experience as a Black male in America. My goal was to capture my voice through visual storytelling and allow the audience to see our world through my perspective.
