Riverment: An AU Student Film

In March and April, a bunch of DCSC members participated in the stunts, acting, and production of a couple of films in the DMV area.


We were fortunate enough to be able to participate in two scenes for the American University student film Riverment. This film “explores the evolving fight for Black rights in America and how it affects family through generations.  Focusing on the dynamic relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter, this film centers women and showcases how women have always been, and will continue to be, in the forefront of the movement. The film is set present day during the brink of a new age revolution against police brutality.”

Dylan Hintz coordinated and choreographed the stunts for the 1960s diner scene and the 2017 riot scene. Both involved several other DCSC members as cast and crew.

Thank you so much director Shayla Racquel, and the rest of the Riverment film team, for involving us in your shoot! We can’t wait to see the final product!
