Uncle Nearest Screening At the Tribeca Film Festival

Jeffrey Wright took the stage at Tribeca Film to introduce the film we worked on The Story of Nearest Green. The Uncle Nearest film follows the untold story of Nathan ‘Nearest’ Green and his birth to Tennessee whiskey. As the first African American  master distiller on record. The film uncovers how Nearest’s distilling secrets were shared with a young boy who came to work on the farm with him. Nearest taught the young boy everything about whiskey, and later as the boy grew older, he started a business of his own known to the world as Jack Daniels. The story beautifully told by Jeffrey Wright left a packed auditorium in tears, as it brought to light the long-buried legacy of Nearest Green.

Here is the link to the film. Grooming for Jeffrey Wright by me.
