“The correlation between childhood trauma and becoming an abuser later in life cannot be ignored…To me, it’s the root of the problem”.

Can Richie shed the ghosts of his past to make the right decisions for his future?

“Gifts of My Kin” is a short film produced by LA-based actor Dustin Green in observation of Domestic Violence Awareness month. It is available now on Youtube.

The story revolves around the evolution of Richie Price – a child raised in an abusive household who grows into a young man struggling to deal with anger and alcohol issues.

“The correlation between childhood trauma and becoming an abuser later in life cannot be ignored,” says Green, who created the film after discovering a history of domestic violence in his own family. “I wanted to make a piece that highlighted this. To me, it’s the root of the problem”.

“Gifts of My Kin” has screened at the following film festivals in 2016:

  •     Los Angeles International Short Film Festival
  •     California International Short Film Festival
  •     Awareness Film Festival

Green is currently working on a faith-based feature film that continues the story. “The focus shifts to treatment in the next film. I want to explore ways we can truly break the cycle of violence in these families.”
