From director Nikyatu Jusu (whom we featured here before), comes her newest short film: Black Swan Theory, which she made after winning the Shadow and Act $3,300 Filmmaker Challenge.

Film synopsis: "A psychiatric casualty of war recently returned to the US, Sonya’s imagined sense of normalcy crumbles around her; she must hunt or become the hunted."

I cannot wait for this project to debut. Jusu is an extremely talented director, and she's telling stories that mainstream Hollywood is only too happy to ignore.
