Crooked Trees Gon Give Me Wings: Short Film
After premiering at this year’s Tribeca Festival, the Savannah-lensed Crooked Trees Gon Give Me Wings is available to stream. The film is described as “Savannah’s moss-covered forests, with all its whispering winds and enchanted branches, are alive to Bertie Bee Hooks, the gifted granddaughter of an experienced midwife. As she absorbs the wisdom of folk medicine, Bertie Bee will work with her mystical connection to the spirit world as she becomes exposed to the tragedies of a wounded American past.”
The short film was a part of the Indeed Rising Voices program, a collaboration with Lena Waithe, Hillman Grad Productions, Ventureland, and 271 Films. This program aims to discover, invest in and amplify stories created by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) filmmakers and storytellers.
