DARK SEED customer testimonies:
Just watched the movie 🎥. Enjoyed the depth of the characters. Black Men and Women need need friends to share their experiences with. It’s good to see positive portrayals of our people as husbands and wives in loving relationships. As a man it is important for us to have male friends who tell us like it is. We need brothers to be honest with their friends. Forgiveness is so important, since as humans mistakes are inevitable. We must forgive ourselves and others in order to get closure. The mentorship of young men is our opportunity to model manhood. To be a man you need to see a man. Great Movie !--Airborne
"Wow! 100% believable acting, It felt like no one was acting, more like I was a fly on the wall of people's real lives. Additional touches in the film are Emon's boss looking at his hand after shaking Emon's hand to express her sweaty palms. Using white fade outs and a real spoken word poet perform the DARK SEED poem written by the screenwriter for the wedding anniversary scene. Furthermore, the camera work was a major contributor which augmented the phenomenal acting. Additionally, the photo stills sequences were timed and impactful."

The premise and content of DARK SEED is timeless and and most importantly, necessary for those who ponder past choices, that may haunt many. I encourage parents to view it with their sons and daughters. It's a very conscious awakening, compelling and moving film. with vibrations of passion and unconditional love that sadly, we don't see in a lot of African American movies.
