Black Creek Risin
Black Creek Risin’ by LaDarrion Williams and directed by Marcus M. Martin.
Set in the ripe and sweltering summer bayou heat of 1920, Black Creek Risin’ centers on Mama Jakes, a majestic black woman, who, in order to survive, begins to bootleg her famous hooch with her business partner and musician, Willie Earl. The Law of Prohibition rains down resulting in the closing of her prominent juke joint, Black Creek. This, in turn, sets in motion a chain of life-changing events that greatly impact Mama Jakes and her entire family. Black Creek Risin’ is about love…bootleggin’…and the dark secrets hidden in the backwoods of Louisiana. Black Creek Risin’ is the first installment of LaDarrion Williams’ Black Creek Trilogy.
