A Crime on the Bayou lands a trailer

Opens in NYC, LA and Select Theaters Nationwide June 18, 2021 from Shout! Studios.

A poignant yet inspiring true story about allyship, justice and how groups of activists from disparate backgrounds have worked together in the quest to dismantle institutional racism, documentary feature A Crime on the Bayou will open in select theaters nationwide June 18, 2021 from Shout! Studios.

Written and directed by ​Nancy Buirski​ (The ​Loving Story, The Rape of Recy Taylor​), this eye-opening documentary had its world premiere at the 2020 DOC NYC Film Festival and is the third film in director’s trilogy profiling brave individuals who fought for justice in and around the Civil Rights era. Executive produced by​ Mike Jackson, John Legend, Ty Stiklorius and Austyn Biggers of Get Lifted Film Co and Regina K. Scully, Geralyn Dreyfous, Harlene Freezer, Jules Horowitz, Felicia Horowitz, Brenda Robinson, Amy Tiemann, Mark Trustin and Jamie Wolf. The film also features a new original song, “My Path” written and performed by Raphael Saadiq.   

A Crime on the Bayou is the story of Gary Duncan, a Black teenager from Plaquemines Parish, a swampy strip of land south of New Orleans. In 1966, Duncan tries to break up an argument between white and Black teenagers outside a newly integrated school. He gently lays his hand on a white boy’s arm. The boy recoils like a snake. That night, police burst into Duncan’s trailer and arrest him for assault on a minor.

A young Jewish attorney, Richard Sobol, leaves his prestigious D.C. firm to volunteer in New Orleans. With his help, Duncan bravely stands up to a racist legal system powered by a white supremacist boss to challenge his unfair arrest. Their fight goes all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, and their lifelong friendship is forged.

AMAZON STUDIOS ACQUIRES Marginal MediaWorks LATINX TV SERIES!

Marginal MediaWorks’ Founder & CEO Sanjay Sharma today announced the company’s official expansion into premium scripted series with “Hummingbird,” an hour long, LatinX genre series. In a competitive bidding situation, the series was sold to Amazon Studios.

“Hummingbird” was developed by Primetime Emmy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Rudy Valdez, working closely with Sharma and writer Marcella Ochoa, with whom MARGINAL also partnered on the recently announced Blumhouse & Amazon film project “Madres.” Ochoa will write the pilot, with Valdez directing. Sharma, Valdez & Ochoa will also serve as Executive Producers on the series.

The show is a Stephen King-style American Gothic, from the perspective of a Mexican American family living in the Midwest whose search for the American dream finds them haunted by something far more sinister. The series concept is loosely inspired by Valdez’s life.

“We are thrilled to delve into the world of what we call Mexican Americana – a story about a family lured in by the American dream, only to become haunted by it,” said Sharma.

“With Rudy & Marcella, we have crafted a first of its kind exploration that imports supernatural and psychological horror elements into what, at the end of the day, is an aspirational American family drama that will be intriguing to audiences around the world.”

“I’ve spent my career building my voice in documentaries, but more importantly telling the stories of underserved and marginalized communities through giving them agency and light,” said Valdez.

“Marcella’s personal background, her growing body of work in the space, and her keen sense of Mexican American lore, coupled with Sanjay’s own immigrant background and story development expertise, made us the perfect trio to bring this vision to life.”
“I grew up loving horror, but never saw myself represented in the genre,” said Ochoa.

“Taking our culture, our ancestors’ stories and oral histories, and crafting a commercial, broadly accessible but culturally specific series with a prolific filmmaker like Rudy was nearly effortless. I’m thrilled to bring this vision to the world in series form with MARGINAL with whom I also did my second feature film.”

Rudy Valdez is among the most important documentary filmmakers in the country. His breakout feature “The Sentence” was on the New York Times list of the 20 most definitive LatinX movies of the century. Valdez has active features and series across streamers.

He is directing a series for Disney+ with Blumhouse on the Detroit Youth Choir, and his current series “We Are: The Brooklyn Saints” has been critically acclaimed and is streaming now on Netflix. Valdez has also been awarded the Roger Ebert Prize for Documentary, is a Sundance Festival Audience Award winner, and is a Critic’s Choice Award nominee for Best New Director. “Hummingbird” marks his entry into fiction storytelling.

Marcella Ochoa recently co-wrote the LatinX feature film “Madres” for MARGINAL, Blumhouse and Amazon. Currently, Ochoa is writing a supernatural thriller for Paramount Players. She previously wrote and directed an award-winning short film based on her family in South Texas, “My Name is Maria de Jesus,” which premiered on HBO Latino. “Hummingbird” marks her entry into scripted television.

MARGINAL has quickly gained traction in feature film, its first project premiering at TIFF and its second selected for Tribeca 2021. The last two years, the company has produced and set up features across streamers and major studios. “Hummingbird” is the first scripted series off the company’s growing slate of episodic projects in fiction, nonfiction and animation – all from a diverse, new generation of storytellers for U.S. and global markets.

Deal was negotiated on behalf of MARGINAL by CAA and Granderson Des Rochers.

Valdez is repped by ICM.

Ochoa is repped by CAA, Inclusion Management, and Felker Toczek Suddleson Abramson.
