Ephraim Asili is in residence at EMPAC with a group of performers to develop the script for his feature-length film Inheritance. The artist-filmmaker’s first foray into working with an ensemble cast, this event will provide a behind-the-scenes look into the early stages of production. Based on real events, the film’s protagonist inherits a house in West Philadelphia that becomes home to an urban Collective for activists of color. The tension builds as day-to-day domestic issues compete with the collective’s political agenda.
