Casting background extras for “Riverment,” a short film exploring the evolving fight for Black rights in America and its generational toll on families.

Synopsis: Former Civil Rights activist Maureen is no stranger to racial injustices and traumatic experiences while participating in the fight for equality. To cope with what she’s encountered, Maureen spends her time in her favorite place of peace, on the riverbank. Maureen enjoys bonding with her granddaughter Tyna here, where she shares stories about her past experiences.

Now 19 years old, Tyna has become a freedom fighter in her own right, tackling inequalities and discrimination occurring on her college campus. When Tyna decides to take her activism outside the proposed safe boundaries of school, Maureen is opposed to it out of fear for Tyna’s safety, and sanity.
