Three years ago, a very talented director named Pamela K. Johnson decided to go to AFI and film a little short she created about Hurricane Katrina called Stitches.
The funny things about these student projects is that you have such a great time doing them, you completely fall in love with your cast and crew, and then more times than not, it disappears into the ether without so much as a VHS copy to keep you company in the long, lonely nights.
Not so the case with Stitches. Right off the bat, it was being accepted to film festivals all over the country and garnering all sorts of praise. It seemed like every month, someone was discovering it and screening it proudly.
But as the years passed, things quieted down, as these things do. Then out of the blue, I see a post on Facebook from Gabi Rojas.
Stitches was on BET.
How cool is that? And now, through the magic of the internet, you can watch the whole movie streaming online.
Sounds like a plan to me!
