Written by Tony Chennault and produced by 267 Productions, “Oldhead” provides an in-depth look at the urban communities of Philadelphia. “Oldhead” is a term used to show respect to an older person who gives wisdom and knowledge to younger generations. Through making and distributing this film, we aim to bring awareness of what an oldhead really is, and why they are so essential to our urban communities. Writer and director Tony Chennault says, “This movie will make people appreciate the service an oldhead provides for the community.”
Sean, our young protagonist, finds himself at a crossroads. He can either continue to choose life on the streets, or he can choose to turn his life around through the mentor ship of his oldhead Bumpy. Deep down, Sean is a good kid who know that Bumpy’s advice and experience can save his life, but he feels he must remain loyal to his friend Kareem. In “Oldhead”, the streets will force Sean to choose between the two.
“Oldhead” premieres August 22.
