Amazing. Graciela Iturbide's Deaf Chola's. It's part banging and part signing.

Hey Lovely Peoples. Happy and Proud to announce that I've be awarded the 2013 Director's Guild of America (DGA) Student Film Award for Sweet, Sweet Country. It's such a great honor.

Thank you to all the Sweet, Sweet Country supporters out there. It's absolutely wonderful to have so many friends back your efforts from that moment you have that small idea to those days on set to those late night conversations on what's working in your edit and what isn't. Thank you, you wonderfully talented people!

It's been a great week for Sweet, Sweet Country!

Super excited to announce that Sweet, Sweet Country is an Official Selection in the Atlanta Film Festival!

We’re screening in the New Mavericks Female Directors Shorts Program along with some really great films. I’m honored.

On a personal note, I can’t begin to express how excited I am to go home and watch this film with my family and friends.

We’ll update you on screening date/time(s).

ATL, Shawtay!

What's happening people?

I just wrapped my latest film, Sweet, Sweet Country, shot on location in Clarkston, GA. It's a film about a young refugee woman and I'm so proud of the work my cast and crew put into this film. We filmed on location, in the community the New York Times calls the most diverse 1.1 sq. mile in America.

Our cast includes, Gbenga Akinnagbe (The Wire, Nurse Jackie, The Good Wife) and local Atlanta actor and force to be reckoned with Danielle Deadwyler.

Every bit of support helps. Also, please don't be shy about sharing the link.

Thanks!
Daye Rogers
