Based on the short story by Pinckney Benedct, MIRACLE BOY is a 17 min short film I produced with director Jake Mahaffy in Williamsburg, WV. The film was shot on the SONY FS 100 with all of the young boys cast from West Virginia.
The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2012. It won the Top Grit prize for best overall film at the 2013 Indie Grits Film Festival.
The film is scheduled to screen at the Maryland Film Festival in Baltimore in May 2013. More dates and festivals are being added.
The film already appeared at the West Virginia International Film Festival, the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival, the Athens International Film Festival, the Nashville Film Festival, & Indie Grits in Columbia, SC.
To defer the cost of supporting the film during its festival, we are accepting donations and will be providing various gifts in return.
