Nothing Happened Trailer from Nothing Happened on Vimeo.

A man recounts his Stop and Frisk arrest and the ripples it makes in his life and close relationships over the following year. He wrestles with how to place what happened to him alongside the tragic stories fueling the current national dialogue on Racial Profiling. At turns, comic and reflective, this short docudrama is a voice for the "non-sensational" stories, which can get lost among the headlines permeating social media. It suggests that one's own awareness of subtler forms of racism needs to be cultivated for change to be truly radical.
