BIO

RICHMOND IS A CINEMATIC DIRECTOR MOVED BY COMPLEX AND THOUGHT PROVOKING NARRATIVE. HIS WORKS EXTEND ACROSS VARIOUS GENRES FROM COMMERCIAL, BRANDED CONTENT, MUSIC TO LONG-FORM NARRATIVE. “SOME SORT OF JUDAS” IS RICHMOND'S LONG-FORM DEBUT. THE DOCUMENTARY FILM LOOKS AT VIOLENCE IN TORONTO’S INNER-CITY AND ITS RIPPLE EFFECT ON A GRIEVING COMMUNITY THROUGH THE STORY OF KEVIN WILLIAMS A ONCE PROMISING RAPPER FORCED TO BECOME THE CROWN WITNESS AGAINST HIS FRIEND CHARGED ON FOUR MURDERS. KEVIN NOW BRANDED AS “RAT” UNSPOOLS THE COMPLEX STORY OF BETRAYAL, TRAGEDY, SECRETS, AND LIES FROM AN UNKNOWN LOCATION. THE FILM PREMIERED ON TVO IN OVER 100 000 HOMES SPARKING MASSIVE ONLINE CONVERSATIONS. SEVERAL EDUCATORS AND ACTIVISTS HAVE DUBBED IT ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT CANADIAN DOCUMENTARIES ON CRIME AND JUSTICE. RICHMOND IS CURRENTLY WORKING WITH LESLIE WAGNER-WILSON AUTHOR OF “SLAVERY OF FAITH” A STORY CHRONICLING HER STORY AS BEING ONE OF THE FEW REMAINING SURVIVORS OF THE JIM JONES PEOPLES TEMPLE MASSACRE ON NOVEMBER 18 1978. THE STORY FOLLOWS HER EARLY CHILDHOOD, BEING APART OF THE CULT AND ESCAPING WITH HER YOUNG SON AND NINE OTHERS ON THE MORNING OF THE MASSACRE.
