MLK Boston has selected Boston-based filmmaker Roberto Mighty to produce and direct America’s first documentary, multimedia and online project about Martin Luther King, Jr and Coretta Scott King’s pivotal years in Boston in the early 1950’s.
Taking stylistic cues from narrative filmmaking, this documentary will explore the romantic relationship between Coretta Scott and Martin Luther King Jr. when they met as college students in Boston; where they went and what they were doing in the city; and their dreams for a life of activism and family. From the beginning, they were committed to making the country a better place. In the end, they made the world a better place. The project will show that history and make it relevant to today’s worldwide audiences - utilizing living witnesses, interactive storytelling, immersive new media installation and graphic animation.
