Tina Mabry -- Writer of ITTY BITTY TITTY COMMITTEE is Damned!!
MISSISSIPPI DAMNED, premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival and was the winner of the Jury Award at the Chicago International Film Festival 2009. The film is based on a true story about three poor, Black kids in rural Mississippi who reap the consequences of their family's cycle of abuse, addiction, and violence.
Bitterly honest and profoundly subtle, writer/director Tina Mabry successfully captures growing up in a world where possibilities and opportunities seem to die in the face of the suffocating reality of physical and sexual abuse, obsession, and a myriad of destructive compulsions.
