Almost four years in the making, Lift is about the search for self-love in a community with a set of values that is completely unaffordable. While most inner-city films have addressed the singular male experience, this film is multi-generational and true to households held together by strong, Black women. It was inspired by benchmarks like Ordinary PeopleEast of Eden, and The Little Thief. Powerful films where a child spurned by a parent persists in trying to gain their love, and is forced into dark and often extreme circumstances.
