The 904: Shadow on the Sunshine State is a one-hour documentary film of the real-life story of Jacksonville’s epidemic tide of violence- and search for solutions. The 2011 Suncoast Emmy winning film, shot in HD, tells the stories of several different individuals impacted by violent crime:
Stories like Richard Collier’s. The former Jacksonville Jaguar left tackle was shot fourteen times during a night on the town, and ended up in a wheelchair, part of his leg amputated.
Stories like Beverly McClain’s. The Jacksonville mother has made it her mission to help other parents like herself, after she lost her son to a still-unknown killer.
Stories like Gerald Dove’s. The former drug dealer served three terms in prison after helping to introduce crack to North Florida in the 1980’s. Now, he speaks to young people about his experiences and urges them to go straight. But Gerald Dove also knows that jobs in The 904 are hard to come by for convicted felons.
Winner of “Best Audience Film” at the International Black Film Festival of Nashville, and the 2010 recipient of the prestigious Don Davis Film Finishing Fund Award via Film Florida, The 904: Shadow on the Sunshine State uses the enormous narrative and emotional power of film to raise awareness and spark solutions to a problem plaguing America’s inner cities.
