2023 Official Selection: Short Film – Documentary

In the wake of George Floyd’s murder, a Nigerian-born man takes a knee in the middle of a Venice, CA street for 8 minutes and 47 seconds, as his own statement of peaceful protest. When his “kneel” starts to become a nightly ritual, attracting followers who look to him for guidance, he’s forced to confront his own views of racism, bias, and complicity.
