Don't Call it a Riot!

Written and Directed by Amontaine Aurore

It's 1968 and Reed, a member of Seattle's Black Panther Party, must juggle the demands of a new marriage and a baby on the way, yet still find time to fight for liberation and dream of creating a better world. When her best friend Marti moves in, there is yet one more thing on her plate. Reed is unaware of the forces that will eventually destroy the Party, as well as the ones that threaten her happy home. It will take 31 years before she discovers the betrayal that was at the root of a dream deferred.
Featuring: Meysha Harville as Reed, Mic Montgomery as Sam, Lillian Afful-Straton as Marti, Skylar Wilkerson as Falala, and Robert Lovett as Paris.
