It's been six years since famed actor/director Bill Duke stunned audiences with his shocking documentary, Dark Girls. He returns with the same impact and controversy through CREATED EQUAL - an independently produced legal thriller.
Created Equal is a story about Thomas Reilly, a cocky, up-and-coming attorney that begrudgingly takes on a case for Sister Alejandra, who's desperate to become a priest in the Catholic Church. Against his supervisor's wishes, Tommy files suit against the Archdiocese of New Orleans for sex discrimination without justifiable cause.
As the trial unfolds, an extremist concocts a plot to stop the heresy against the church by attacking and threatening to kill Alejandra if they don't back off.
The film stars Broadway actor and singer, Aaron Tveit (Grease Live!) Latina actress, Edy Ganem (Devious Maids), Yohance Myles (Shots Fired), veteran actors, Lou Diamond Phillips (Longmire) and GregAlan Williams (Greenleaf).
Based on the novel, Created Equal, written by Roger A. Brown, who also serves as Executive Producer, the script was written by Ned Bowman and Michael Ricigliano Jr., and Joyce Renee Lewis. The film was produced by Thada Catalon of T-Cat Films.
