On the movie set "Into The South"
Last Tuesday and Wednesday Gyasi filmed his scenes for the movie Into The South. It is a story about a 10 year old biracial boy who is traveling down south with his white father to visit with his recently deceased African American mother's family. Gyasi did not get the lead role "Jaris" instead he played a bully who Jaris and his father encounter along their way. It is a film by Micah Barber, who is an award winning filmmaker here in Austin. The one scene that Gyasi was in took 2 days to shoot! It was a great experience, even more fun because there were 2 other 10 year old boys on the set. We'll post pictures as soon as we get them.
