An American Citizen (Composed by Nolan Gasser, Directed by Jarred Alterman | USA | 9 min.)

Inspired by Marie Hull's famous painting of the same name, An American Citizen Filmmaker depicts the life Mississippian John Wesley Washington, who was born into slavery.

Jarred Alterman has created a series of stories out of painter's work from across her nine decade lifespan to tell the compelling and timely story of a man and people coming to terms with what it means to be a truly free American. Accompanied by music from composer Nolan Gasser, inventor of the Musical Genome Project, who brings an eloquent voice to these figures who for so long had none.
