From the Director

“When I first read These Final Hours it was a film I knew I had to direct. It completely touched upon all the pent up anger and sadness that had been boiling inside of me over the past four years. As an African American male I wanted to craft a film which depicts the misconceptions and inherent dangers we face just leaving the house each day.

At the forefront of my mind before we began shooting were Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and the countless others who’ve been victimized for being black in America.

Film can be a powerful medium for change and I hope These Final Hours provokes conversation, and creates a pathway for other films that speak to systemic racism and racial injustice everywhere.”
