DK Filmworks Mission Statement
DK Filmworks was created by Kendall Givens-Little and Dewey Ortiz Jr. to tell dramatic stories about African American males that challenge the perception created by Hollywood Cinema. Historically Black men have been limited to certain roles (the crooked cop, drug dealer, jock, abusive spouse, etc.) and are rarely cast as normal individuals with struggles that go beyond race. We believe that these types of films will expand the perception and roles of African Americans, while pulling beyond color lines.
