With “Water Through Rock”, screenwriter Michael Angel Johnson gives us a piece of true drama, combined with the unstoppable power of History and the hope in a better future.
Starting from the amazing life of Edmonia Lewis, the script develops a story in which fiction mixes with reality, giving us an exciting journey in search of happiness and justice. The text unfolds through so many places and so many faces, but Johnson’s wise hand is able to never lose its meaning and attention. The artistic maturity of the writer is evident, in representing art with this moving sensitivity. The ability to create beauty from a simple block of marble becomes the metaphor of the human being, capable of rising above the murky world of racism and hatred.
“Water Through Rock” is a breathtaking script, free, “immense”, which only thanks to the courage and skill of Johnson uses all the nuances of the human soul in a succession of memorable characters and scenes.
The style is vibrant and powerful: while reading the script we can even hear the tone of voice used by characters, thanks to the great psychological construction of the scenes. Everything is alive in this screenplay, thanks to the meticulous attention paid to every details, especially in the dialogic system. The rythm is very well built, in a perfect orchestra of tension, detente and emotional climax.
We hope to see “Water Through Rock” on the screen very soon.
