Interview with Filmmaker La’Chris Jordan (JANUARY 14TH)

Matthew Toffolo's Summary

JANUARY 14TH played to rave reviews at the Los Angeles Action/Crime/Thriller Festival in August 2020.

Matthew Toffolo: What motivated you to make this film?

La’Chris Jordan: JANUARY 14TH was inspired by my parent’s 35-year marriage. January 14th is the date of their wedding anniversary and I wanted to commemorate their life together. They were best friends who had been through heaven and hell together. But when my mother died, everything stopped. It was heartbreaking, especially for my father. He had lost not only a wife, but a life partner and a best friend. Everything came to standstill and piecing it all together again was a process. It still is. So, the film was my way of exploring grief and how we try to find a semblance of normalcy amidst the emptiness.
