An Award-Winning FILM Revealing RaciAL ANd SociAl Issues Not often PORTRAYEd on screen
Writer/director/actor Will McFadden’s award-winning independent debut is a complex tale that reveals unconscious racism and assumed privilege in the innocence of a baby. The concept for the film was born from the true story of a black man killed in police custody during a racially charged incident. That man's son, Joseph Campbell, co-wrote the story with McFadden. Doubting Thomas is the winner of Audience Award at Dances With Films Festival, Best Screenplay and Best Actor at Golden Door International Film Festival, and Best First Feature at Tallgrass Film Festival.
“Doubting Thomas is a great drama. The acting is stellar, the writing is honest, and what it says about race, perception, and your true self is sincere.” - Film Threat
