The Pan African Film Festival is in full swing and on Wednesday afternoon, Isaiah Washington premiered his film, Blue Caprice.
In a story about fear, love and a father-son relationship, Washington plays the role of John Allen Muhammed, the man who orchestrated the 2002 beltway sniper attacks. HipHollywood caught up with Washington to talk about the film which was was inspired by the real life events that led to the horrific attacks.
“It’s a great film and I’m proud of it,” he said. “We agreed that we were making an art film about what it would like having a very toxic father and son relationship, inspired on the actual events that’s prepping throughout the film. In fact, the actual incidents that transpire that everyone is aware of and the horrific events doesn’t happen til the last 10-12 minutes of the film.”
The drama, which made it’s debut at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival has garnered multiple nominations, including a NAACP Image award. We talked with Washington’s co-star star, Tequan Richmond, who tells us that the cast and crew saw it coming.
“We were kind of expecting something for this,” Richmond, who is also nominated for a NAACP Image Award for his role on General Hospital told us. “When we finished it and we all watched it, we were like ‘somebody should say something, we don’t care who it is.’ Really we just care that people watch it.”
Blue Caprice is on DVD and Netflix now.
