The idea for Evidence came to me at a time when news emerged of Freddie Gray's murder and the ensuing protests that sparked a nationwide outcry. I was still in high school.
As an asipring Indian filmmaker in Baltimore., M Night Shyamalan and his films had a profound impact on myself and my artistic ambitions. I always wanted tell an emotional ghost story like he did with The Sixth Sense. I thought of Freddie and the countless other innocent voices silenced by the evils of the world. What if we could still hear his voice? What if we could help?
