I Thought I Knew You

Location: Mount Rainier, Maryland

Type: Film

I Thought I Knew You or I-Tiky is a synoptic tale of 3 life-long friends, each from different races but with identical upbringings. The relationship between Brandon, Ashton and Christopher collides in a fight over a voting choice in the time of Obama’s historic presidency and the not-so-new, Trump America. Pushing the boundaries of friendship, diversity and male emotions, we see inside a friendship that crashes, breaks, then heals, producing a stronger, richer bond between three men from different races who share the same background.
