We go to new heights as we bring the Film Project Inspiration of A Hero, to the Big Screen. This is a true illustration of a defining chapter in American history. The film embraces the spirit of a true hero, Joe Louis. The story illustrates how the Life of Joe inspires a new generation of urban America as challenges present themselves and life takes a new direction.
Inspiration of A Hero is a mainstream crowd pleaser in the company of other successful films, which characterize the life of iconic figures. Movies such as Ray, The Blind Side and the film of an Irish Boxer “The Fighter”, which earned record numbers at the box office. Inspiration Of A Hero encompasses the Era of the 30’s where fashion, music and lifestyle ran over with swag. Our direction is to capture Joe Louis’ in and outside the ring. He is widely regarded as the first African American to achieve the status of an American hero, and he was the focal point of anti-Nazi sentiment leading up to and beyond World War II. He was instrumental in integrating the game of golf and breaking the sport’s color barrier in America. This is a larger than life story of Joe Louis, the World’s greatest boxer and the cultural impact of his legacy on young America. This is an authentic depiction of a hero that will inspire us all.
