The Making of Nineteen Ninety-Three

1993 is a powerful short film inspired by a spoken word piece published in the book “Pieces Of The Puzzle” by poet Nicole Serrato.


Our story revolves around 23-year old Amy who learns through boxing how to deal with the anger and pain caused by her mother’s unsolved murder.

Based on a true story, the murder of the character’s mother happened in the year “1993”. This was used as the title to reflect how long anger and pain can be held on to, in this case 24 years.
