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.
Other credits include Direector of Photography Tim Meunier and Editor Chris King.
The cast includes the following actors:
Paul T. McGee
