Two Nations IMDB:
Xavier's New Listing:
I am cast to play the 17th century character, Makena, and my GranSun will be one if the toddlers of the Elanti Village (or a 21st century child). About the film:
"TWO NATIONS, produced by Screenwriter and Script Advisor Ruby Lee Thigpen-Whitehurst @thigpenwhitehurst, an enrolled member of the Chickamauga (Eastern Cherokee) Nation of Georgia. The film is about the story of a young, First Nation (Native American) man named Yellow Wolf and the young, runaway, African slave named Zerondi who he helps. After facing the harsh and cruel conditions that the stolen African people endured while being "imported" across the vast oceans, Zerondi escapes captivity. The film then unfolds into a love story and historical drama about the merging of Two Nations, the side of African history hardly ever told, the beginnings of our African and Native Americans ancestors that millions of usare the descendants of today.
This film is based on Ruby's book, "Loves' Soft Voice." Check out www.TWONATIONS.INFO.com. Investors and additional producers are welcome! A shoutout to @dmtm_inc for making this happen for all of us! (I submitted Virgil for a role too, and he's in! Will share on that later. Heehee!) ^_^ <3
