Mauli Junior Bonner is a Fist time, Writer, Director, and Producer. His background is in music as a songwriter. After learning about the story of Green Flake, he wrote a song… a 200 page one. Mauli was determined to have his story told through film.
In a time where African Americans were viewed as less that human, a young enslaved man was tasked with blazing a trail across the country for the Mormon Church. I tell this story because it happened and should no longer be silenced. Green Flake lead the largest pioneer migration in American history. This film shows how a man went from Southern slave to Western hero.
