The Visitor Film Exposes Sacramento Stereotypes


SacTV.com "Video of the Day" review by Alex Cosper on Feb. 20, 2012



The Visitor is a local film that debunks a long list of Sacramento stereotypes. The story revolves around a mother played by Serpil Vandale who wants to raise her son in an environment where he can appreciate art and culture. But the kid's suburbanized grandmother played by Linda Judd warns about the dangers of living Downtown. The problem is, most of her warnings are simply images shaped by television imagery and economic status. The grandmother's perception of Downtown is a place full of poor people who get mugged all the time. Ultimately, she learns how her perceptions and pre-judgements are over-blown.

The film presents plenty of familiar local scenes such as Tower Theater and Luna's Cafe. The film was featured in AccessSacramento's "A Place Called Sacramento" festival in 2009. It was written, directed and produced by Sharon Scrivner and Zeba Hone. Music was provided by Beat Champs and Ben Loco & The Funky Divine.
