So Here's What Happened
Carolyn Talks 'Inheritance' with the Short Film's director and Writer Annalise Lockhart and her cast
Written and directed by Annalise Lockhart, Inheritance is a multi-genre short film about a Black family in Vermont who encounter the ghosts of white people passed on from the mortal world, but still intent on preventing the family from living in peace on their own property. During our chat for Carolyn Talks...I spoke with Annalise and her cast, Victoria A. Villier, Ron Brice and DeLelon Dallas about birth rights, family legacies, generational curses and science fiction.
Inheritance recently screened at the the Oscar qualifying Atlanta Film Festival, RiverRun International Film Festival and the Palm Springs International ShortFest, another Oscar qualifier.
Director Annalise Lockhart is a writer/director whose work is influenced by her Afro-Futurist beliefs and the genre’s power for change. She has worked extensively as a 1st Assistant Director on projects such as Random Acts of Flyness (HBO), The Assistant starring Julia Garner, The Fits and Chained For Life. Inheritance is her first short film as both writer and director.
