Filmmaker Chinonye Chuckwu’s releases trailer for powerful new film ‘A Long Walk’.

"A father humiliates his son by parading him through the neighborhood in women’s clothing in front of all the other kids on a summer day. The impact of that decision ripples through his family and best friend’s lives for years to come.

This story is based on true events.”

These events are based on the real life story of writer Samuel Autman whose manuscript-in-the-works, Sanctified: A Memoir detailed the following:

When I was ten years old in the summer of 1977, I was standing outside in St. Louis playing Nerf football in the streets with other neighborhood boys when we heard the loud thud of a door slam.

Our game stopped. We all looked up to see Steve, a kid who was eight or nine years old, being pulled by the arm, out of the house by his father.

Steve’s dad had caught him applying makeup and lipstick on his face. Too punish him, paraded Steve through the neighborhood wearing an oversized dress, high heels, a turban and a carrying a gigantic purse. His dad followed him with a belt dangling from his fist.

"You want to be a f******* girl?" His father screamed. "I’ll make you a f******* girl!"

“I’m sorry daddy, I won’t do it again. Please don’t make me do this,” the boy begged.

His father ignored those pleas. For the next fifteen minutes, he dragged Steve around our big city block as neighborhood kids teased and mocked him. Never had I send anything more humiliating. Although I cringed, I was among the hecklers — not my greatest childhood moment.

Steve would have had reason to feel betrayed by because when the other boys weren’t around, we talked about TV shows starring women like Get Christie Love, Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, and Wonder Woman, to name a few.

As we all followed them around the block, it became less. His tears mixed with makeup and lipstick stained the dress.

'A Long Walk' has so far been screened at the Cleveland International Film Festival, Athens International FIlm and Video Festival and the Florida Film Festival.

Jon Stewart Goes After Fox in Powerful Ferguson Monologue

I been waiting for the daily show to come back so they could cover this

Jon rip them boys a new asshole 

See, Jon Stewart usually does a lot of satirical humour, but at this point, the writers are just like “fuck the comedy this shit is real” and I was so happy to see that they finally covered this, and it was really well done.
