12 Months is a documentary about a Los Angeles man (Tony) who rented his home for the entire year of 2013 for $1 per month to help a family in transitional housing. He never met the family, but offered his 3-bedroom home to give the family a chance to get on their feet. The story follows Felicia Dukes and her four children as they are in Tony’s home, as well as explores the impact that generosity has on the community. It has been shown at Urbanworld Film Festival (2014) and International Black Women Film Festival (2014).
Along with PAFF, it has recently been accepted into Africa World Documentary Film Festival, which is a traveling showcase that is featured in 9 cities over 9 months.
