Corey Davis film debut: J is for Junkie

The words of Corey Davis on his film...
In October, 2010 I began shooting a documentary called J is for Junkie about a group crack addicts in Atlanta who live outside in a small cove behind a Texaco, infamously dubbed as the “Living Room.” I spent 3 days interviewing and shadowing them to get a glimpse into their lives. The film was initially inspired by my father, who has been addicted to crack-cocaine my whole life, but once I finished shooting I realized these peoples stories had changed me forever…

This will be the first in a series of documentaries I’m doing on the marginal people of America called “The Glamor series”. Unfortunately, all I am able to share with you now is this poster art. Stay tuned & enjoy. [Photo by Corey Davis, Design by Mr. Soul]
