Documentary about LaQuita Thompson

 

Director, Producer & Editor. "Small Town Dreams."  JErnest Films Production. Documentary Short; April 2015 (5:02).

 

Small Town Dreams explores the life of Xtreme Heat Sports' founder and lead trainer, LaQuita Thompson. The film addresses her youth, her inspirations for her work, gender politics surrounding girls' and womens' participation in sports, and the programs she has developed to counter those barriers.

 

The power appeal of Thompson's message and its relevance and impact lies in the fact that the film has been chosen to screen as an Official Selection in national and international competitive film festivals.
