Not only does this film tell the story of a young boy who is neglected and facing an abusive household, but it also provides a unique view into many of the communities that we live in”.
Financed by Sev himself, via a kickstarter campaign, Doo Doo’s Revenge went on to be accepted into the Cleveland International Film Festival, the Maryland International Film Festival Hagerstown and the Langston Hughes African American Film Festival.
