51 States will be the first film from Writer/Director Cassandra Virdee. She has a very unique voice and lots of authentic stories to tell and I’m excited to be working with her and her producer David Giles to bring their first film to the screen. Cass spends her days as a draughtsman, with recent credits including Wonder Woman, Electric Dreams and Sense8. David’s days are spent in sound, working most recently on Solo: A Star Wars Story and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Together they have written 51 States, a short film with great visual scope and a message that is both current and poignant in today’s world. It challenges racism right at the core and I believe can be an important voice for anti-racism on the short film circuit around the world.
