EPIPHANY Inc. and Stuart Films in collaboration with FDUFilm filmed the narrative feature TITLE VII last summer in Florham Park in eight days. The campus of Fairleigh Dickinson University was a worthy substitute for the film’s setting, Sanger International. With a terrific cast, crew of FDUFilm students, and screenplay co-written by director Nicole Franklin and Craig T. Williams, TITLE VII is a screenplay adaptation of the novel Within The Walls by author Daisy M. Jenkins. Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act bans discrimination in the workplace. Through this film we dive into same-race discrimination in the workplace.
When the Office Becomes Your Private Hell
She’s powerful, Black and female. But at her firm, Blacks need not apply.
The CEO of Sanger International, an IT consulting firm, is powerful and successful Hillary Kelsey. Kelsey is a Black woman with no Black employees and no one can figure out why—until Darryl Montgomery, her 9:30 AM interview, enters the firm. On this day filled with an unbelievably awful morning that reminds Hillary of her “place” in a racially charged society, a pending account that could make or break the future of a company, and a mystery man determined to turn Hillary’s world upside down, the events of the film TITLE VII illustrate why same-race discrimination can not only ruin a company, but possibly destroy lives.
