The Wild Root Company is proud to present a series of short films featuring the works of visionary poet and performer Daniel J. Watts, who most recently starred in the 2014 Tony Award-winning hit Broadway musical After Midnight. Watts' one-man slam experience The Jam: Spoken Word Preserves has played to sold out audiences at Canal Room, Clark Studio Theatre at Lincoln Center and the Helen Hayes Spotlight Theatre, and Watts' work "I Can't Breathe," a response to the death of Eric Garner presented in a Times Square flash mob, went viral in July 2014.
Captured on the Red EPIC by celebrated cinematographer Vongsawat, who has has received global attention for his recent work for Atlantic Records and Harpers Bazaar, Wild Root's latest project aims to showcase the insightful, socially conscious and force-of-nature poetry of a luminous storyteller on the rise in a series of visually arresting films.
Watch a teaser for the series, coming later this season, above!
