The Land FAU: For the city, by the city

One of her main reasons for shooting in Cleveland was to keep the project for the city, by the city.

“There’s something in the heart of Cleveland that just transcends past anything that you see on television. This really gave me an opportunity to create a mirror to the things I saw growing up.”

The production paired a number of local actors with veteran talent like Tommy Ford; giving opportunity to many in an entertainment industry that can be tough to crack.
