THE

LONG SHADOW

 

ABOUT

 

A newly-minted female Sheriff’s Deputy in rural Louisiana takes on her town's old money establishment when the woman she loves - an  attorney fighting to stop a rail deal that threatens to displace the town's poor - is murdered.

 

director's statement

The Long Shadow deals with themes of identity, inequality, and desperation. Its goal is create empathy and understanding for both the protagonists and antagonists alike. Whether or not audiences agree with the actions the characters take, they'll understand on a visceral, emotional level – not just an intellectual one – why they take them.

Empathy in filmmaking can act as a political tool to help us understand each other, rather than using such a powerful platform to paint caricatures of those we disagree with. If there is truly going to be progress, dialogue, and compromise we have to deeply and emotionally connect to the point of view of the ‘other’. The Long Shadow aims to help build that connection.
