"Created Equal boasts a well-acted, beautifully written screenplay that takes on a powerful subject matter where director Bill Duke does an exceptional job leaving both sides of the argument left for audience opinion and discussion."

SAN ANTONIO FILM FESTIVAL
SATURDAY, AUGUST 5
"Created Equal is superbly cast and brilliantly directed, this thought-provoking film is also part thriller and courtroom drama. A long-standing tradition of the Catholic Church is the centerpiece of the movie with its decidedly secular approach. Created Equal is well worth the time spent watching and we are delighted to debut the film in Texas for our audiences."
