Sittin' on Sixty

Sittin' on Sixty

Directed by Lucretia Stinnette
Produced by Darren Colston


Sittin’ On Sixty explores the themes of sex trafficking, gentrification, socio-economic inequality and the many traps young women face today in many cities around the world. It is loosely based on the life of the short film’s talented and humble star, Caridad Johnson. Caridad invited the filmmakers into her world and bravely reinterpreted and in some cases relived moments from her past life.  With the support of Mamacita’s Café, a woman owned and operated social enterprise with the mission to support system impacted youth, and individuals from the Non-Profit organization Misssy, the cast, the crew and the filmmakers hoped to paint a realistic picture of what life can hold for young women vulnerable to America’s inequities and toxic masculinity.
