Storyline

"DAWN"S EARLY LIGHT" is the story of a bigoted, Southern sheriff on the eve of a civil rights march in his town, circa: 1967. As Clayton lays awake in bed listening to the sound of the approaching cars carrying the "damn northerners" into his town, he recalls the days events that have brought on the imminent morning clash. He is a man who's entire sense of order and right is coming into question and the weight of that revelation culminates in a flood of memories from a traumatic childhood. The anatomy of a racist.

Paul Mollan is truly one of the unsung heroes of our generation. Paul restores the lost passion for cinema as an art form. It's difficult to compare his work. Actually, it's more unfair than difficult. In reviewing his work, the focus tends to come back to his ability to fully-capture the humanity of the characters, and the consequences of allowing them to be "human". His characters slowly distance themselves from their soul, and must slowly/awkwardly make the trek back to a painful truth. It's visceral, and necessary. Seemingly-simple, and so seemingly-difficult for mainstream directors to achieve. From casting, to scoring, and venue; Mollan proves that if you have the stomach, and the patience, and - most importantly - the vision; it can be done. If this man ever gets a real budget to work with, look out! "Fantasy Football" (feature) is now in production. Keep an eye out. The teasers are fantastic! Kudos, Paul! Keep 'em coming...
