A Thing as Big As the Ocean

Check out the independent film: A Thing as Big as the Ocean from Four Birds Pictures


Salvaging a guitar and a backpack, Lemmy leaves his life in New Orleans behind and travels west.  On the ride out of town he encounters the young and outgoing Darlene, who is relocating with her distant relatives in Arizona.  A simple chance encounter intersects two lives in transition, and sets Lemmy and Darlene off on a sprawling journey of self-discovery.  Over the next three days the two strangers travel together into the Southwestern desert, where they are compelled to share and confront their half-realized dreams.

About the Creator …

Happy to see a White Man is the person behind the portrayal. Come on Black women writers/directors/producers – you are supposed to be representing for us too!
