FilmWorks Entertainment will be bringing director Elias Mael’s award-winning Against the Grain (Gasparilla International Film Festival, Pan African Film Festival) to the DVD market place on Jan. 14.
In this very personal story, Isaiah Johnson (Vaughn Wilkinson) is a gifted student from the mean streets of Oakland, California who has fought his way to his first year in college — his dream is to be a neurosurgeon. It is a strange, yet exciting world for him … and therein lies the conflict. Does he embrace the future and all the potential that it may hold, and in doing so move beyond his childhood friends — friends with a street culture that grows more alien with each passing day.
Against the Grain is a smart film … very much with a heart. Bonus features include cast interviews.
