“Keep Running” is an animated short film based off of the poem of the same name written by Sterling Suliman. The film is both dedicated and a response to the death of Ahmaud Arbery, the Black Lives Matter movement and addresses the need to create safe and equitable spaces for minority stories, bodies and representation in contemporary media, communities and culture.
Overview, Goals & Significance:
In February of 2020, Mr. Arbery, a 25-year-old black man, was chased and killed by armed white residents of a South Georgia neighborhood. They were arrested months later, only after an article by The New York Times, the release of a video of the February confrontation, and increased attention from lawmakers, celebrities and civil rights activists, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation stepped in.
