“When I think about Desiree and the movie “The White Line” the word that comes to mind is IMPACT. The impact of the movie on today’s issues of female empowerment and racial harmony. Desiree and team have done a wonderful job of touching every corner of both of those issues.”~ Chris Gordon, Media Source Entertainment
