When writer/director Shea E. Butler was looking to get this award winning short film off the ground she turned to Monkeys & Parrots producer Jane Loughman. Together they recruited talented performers Richard Roundtree (Se7en,Shaft,Brick), and Lawrence Gilliard Jr. (The Wire, Walking Dead), shooting the film on a tight schedule and minuscule budget. The Trial of Ben Barry film has gone on to win multiple awards and nominations at many prestigious film festivals around the world.
