WHY WE ARE HERE

"Still Breathing" is a short film we created to document the true story of Rhidale Dotson experiencing COVID-19 in Arkansas Valley Correctional Facility in Colorado. 

This proof-of-concept short film is a trailer of sorts for the feature film "A Theory of Change"
we are working to create about Rhidale's life and how A Theory of Change came into existence.

Using inspiration from Adrienne Maree Brown's Emergent Strategy as our framework, A Theory of Change is committed to finding solutions towards the reduction and prevention of harm caused by prison, poverty and prejudice. 

"Many of us have been socialized to understand that constant growth, violent competition, and critical mass are the ways to create change. But emergence shows us that adaption and evolution depend more on critical, deep, and authentic connections, a thread that can be tugged for support and resilience. The quality of connection between the nodes in the patterns."

(Brown, 14).
