Storyline

The Joy Road Project consists of a movie and an App. The movie Joy Road is about an upwardly mobile lawyer who gets drawn into helping his sister but then finds himself a pawn in a conspiracy to pass laws that fill up prisons. Truth being stranger than fiction, we found the real life counterpart to our fictional conspiracy here in America. The prison industrial complex, Arizona immigration law and Wisconsin Union busting laws are but a few of its accomplishments. So, to promote the film, we designed an APP to allow people to have a voice against this vast conspiracy. Using social media, we hope to be a film project, encased in and released with software that both tells a story and provides the tools for activism. Written by Anonymous

A great film
5 February 2006 | by (Philadelphia) – See all my reviews

I worked with Harry Davis on a shoot in NYC and he's a funny character. Anyway, he showed me a cut of MVP that screened at Sundance and I was floored. I'm shocked that this hasn't been distributed yet. What I saw were actually just scenes and not a linear piece, but the acting was great as was the writing and directing. This film is a great legal thriller. Not BS Hollywood glam like John Grisham stuff, but REAL inner city courtroom drama and crime. I'm telling you, this film is worthy of winning awards. The only reason I can think that this hasn't gotten out yet, is the stars aren't big and let's be real, black films are a hard sell, unless it's got hip hop stars or Will Smith. Look out for MVP!
