The multi-billion-dollar movie industry has grown over the years, thanks to the contributions of different stakeholders, including film producers, directors, writers, and actors. One name that has practically taken the industry by storm with his amazing writing and filmmaking skills is the African American, Orion Kaminky.
Orion’s “The Shooting of June Price” tells the story of a young successful black man and how he was trapped on the same day as it repeats a nightmare of him being killed by the police.
