About The Film
American history has had a significant and symbolic role in shaping the attitudes within society. Racial and socioeconomic stereotypes have emerged from constructed beliefs created out of bias, ignorance and intolerance. The need for a conscious awakening and exploration of a paradigm shift is long overdue.
“Negative Exposure” is a compelling and heart-wrenching story that could take place in any urban city in America. Jayson Gresham is a white man trapped in a cycle of poverty and despair amidst daily occurrences of police brutality and harassment from officers who disdainfully refer to community residents as “unruly animals”.
Gang violence, drugs and spiritual decay haunt Jayson’s community, and as a single father of a baby girl, he desperately wants to break away and build a better life for his daughter.
Jayson’s dreams come crashing down when he is forced into a dangerous confrontation spearheaded by the privileged black son of a local elite, religious leader.
Negative exposure is a film that does not play down to the audience as it cleverly deals with issues of societal complexities while providing answers and solutions to racial, religious and ethnic tensions as are seen today.
