With the midterm elections pacing up, Charlamagne Tha God will be the executive producer for the new documentary that looks back at a midterm campaign from the last election through his production company; CThaGod World LLC.
The film will focus on the life of Bakari Sellers who was the youngest black candidate to enter the South Carolina House of Representatives 12 years ago. After she served for two terms, she later stood for the lieutenant governor seat in the same South Carolina state.
The focus of the entire documentary would be on her rather self-reclaiming campaign dubbed, While I Breathe, I Hope. The film will recount the challenges faced by the Democrats with special emphasis on the black female politicians in South Carolina.
The film will feature Seller who runs for state office to become the first Democrat to be elected in the South Carolina state. This would mark a moment in history as it dates back to the 1870’s when the first African-American held the same office in the South Carolina State.
The film was directed and produced by Emily Harrold who hails from South Carolina. The film is set to have its first world premiere in October during the New Orleans Film Festival.
