Clark U. to Host Screening of Domingo Guyton’s “Footprints in the Concrete”
Wednesday, May 25, 2016
The film is written, produced and directed by Domingo Guyton and is a musical depiction of how a family, church, college and community came together to save a lost youth, trapped in a cycle of hopelessness.
Throughout the film, Guyton reverts back to his childhood as a struggle. While attempting to survive in the mixed pot of drugs, misogyny and violence that Boston, MA delved out in the late 1980’s and being born to a single mother on welfare, Guyton went through a series of events that spun his life out of control by the age of 15. He adds that many of these issues were due to not having a father in his home. The story shows the results of a broken home and the redemptive message of hope is included, which will serve as an inspiration to all attendees.
The film takes the audience from that point to the point where he turns into a successful poet and filmmaker after attending Worcester State University.
Domingo Guyton is Writer, Producer and Director of YTF, which won 5 Awards in Film Festivals across the US. The Co-Producer of My Slave Sister Myself, winner of Best Documentary at both NYC’s 2011 Reel Sisters of the Diaspora Film Festival and Toronto’s 2009 Female Eye Film Festival. He is also the Co-Producer of Lest We Forget: The Black Holocaust, which won Best Documentary for HBO films at the 2007 Martha Vineyard African American Film Festival.
