PRLog - Jul. 2, 2014 - SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- A ground-swell of support is growing for independent filmmaker John L. Brown of Sacramento, California for his upcoming documentary, “Mentally Blind: Open Your Eyes”.

A retired postal carrier whose route took him through the most impoverished neighborhoods in America, John L. Brown witnessed heart-breaking poverty, starvation, and gang violence while walking the streets “in the hood” delivering mail.  Brown tells of his experience as a postman in his book, “Mentally Blind: Open Your Eyes”:

“When I first started writing I was working for the post office as a carrier and was living in the heart of the ghetto. I witnessed so much illegal activity by both the citizens and the police. First, there was a turf war that, incredibly, included the cops. This was followed by a drug war. People were losing their lives over nothing. Nearly everyday someone would go to jail or get shot in the hood. It was bad.”

As the United States slid into a deep recession Brown witnessed evictions based on bogus data, mis-typed addresses and enough other injustices to compel him to document what he was witnessing.  Soon he had the support of his son, John L. Brown II (rap performer Jay Bizzle) and social networking and “buzz” simply took over.

Over the past six months Brown and his son have garnered the attention of CNN news, and now has taken on technical support from such advisers as Champagne of Champagne Filmmaker; Andrew Finch, Associate Producer; Alisha Geraldine Lee of Best Kept Secrets Entertainment; Jasmine Hester, award-winning producer. Supporters of "The Mentally Blind: Open Your Eyes" project also include Saphire Blue, Darius D. Clayton, Tommy Ray Cole; Yvonne Hayden; author and mega-blogger Lenora Rogers; and editor Emily Hill of A.V. Harrison Publishing, Edmonds, Washington.

The next exciting stop for this riveting documentary is the March 2015 "American Documentary Film Festival" where backers and the John L. Brown fan base will gather, many meeting each other in person for the first time after months of work on this award-worthy documentary of life on the streets of the United States of America, post-recession.
