The movie combines four black and white shorts into one film and “deals with issues of race, gender and class set in the American South during the early 20th Century,” according to Variety.
The four shorts are adaptations of William Faulkner stories and the movie was developed by James along with Elysium Bandini Studios and UCLA. Other stars in the film are Topher Grace, Beth Grant, and Twin Shaddow.
This is the second film being created under Elysium Bandini, a new collaboration between Jennifer Howell‘s The Art of Elysium and Vince Jolivette‘s Rabbit Bandini Productions.
