8 Bucks

“A hopeful homeless couple on the rise. A newly widowed man ready to fall. How much would it take to change their lives?”

This story is based on true events.

The film “8 Bucks” was brought to life through the collaboration of a talented team consisting of one African American male director and three African American female directors. The captivating story was crafted by an African American male, while the screenplay was skillfully penned by an African American female. Notably, the film showcases a rich tapestry of diversity, featuring actors from various backgrounds, including South Indian, Latino, Vietnamese, Polynesian, African American, White American, and Jamaican.

Moreover, “8 Bucks” delves into thought-provoking subjects, addressing themes such as Asperger’s syndrome, homelessness, LGBT+ experiences, and the profound impact of death on the lives of those left behind after a traumatic brain injury. The film aims to shed light on these important issues.

It’s worth mentioning that the music composer involved in the project finds himself in a unique circumstance, as he currently serves his country in Ukraine, contributing to its ongoing fight. This further highlights the international collaboration and dedication involved in the creation of “8 Bucks.”
