LITTLE DEVIL

Steve Mason as Lee Atwater

 

LITTLE DEVIL marks the film debut of longtime Los Angeles radio and television personality Steve Mason. Well known to sports fans as co-host of “The Mason & Ireland Show” now heard on 710 ESPN Radio, he is also the pregame host for both the World Champion Los Angeles Lakers and USC Football broadcasts.

The live action short tells the story of the remarkable and controversial political life of Republican operative Lee Atwater. In the span of just 20 minutes, Steve Mason as writer, director and actor captures the essence of what made Lee who he was. After a childhood marred by tragedy, he became the most vicious and ruthlessly competitive campaigner in history. LITTLE DEVIL attempts to find some truth about the man who promised to make the Democratic party sing the blues, and then succeeded at engineering the Presidential election of George Herbert Walker Bush in 1988. Lee was an amateur blues guitarist with friends like BB King, but ironically, he repeatedly used race in political campaigns to divide the electorate, which proved to be a winning strategy.

Atwater was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor in 1991 and famously apologized to the many candidates that he had smeared (including Bush’s 1988 opponent Democrat Michael Dukakis) and published a deeply personal letter in Life magazine before his death, but to this day, some question his so-called “death bed conversion.”

In addition to Steve Mason’s lead performance as Lee Atwater, LITTLE DEVIL also stars John Robinson, Kaitlyn Black, Jamie Nicole Loken, John Moreaux and Reed Marshall. The director of photography is Jon Edwards with sound design by Kelly Cabral.

Boyhood Shadows journeys with Glenn, past and present,

revealing a story that began as a young boy under

the power of a sexual predator. The narrative chronicles

Glenn’s struggle as he tries to make sense of his

life, telling no one. Numbing his pain as a teen with

alcohol and drugs, he held the secret and the shame.

His brothers and sister, his mother and father – who

recognized something was wrong with this once-

goldenboy– were at a loss to understand the cause of

his devastation.

 

Glenn, after suffering for decades, living on the streets,

addicted to alcohol and drugs and sex – finally came up

for air. He describes his past…funny, poignant and sad.

Glenn’s story is interspersed with those of twenty other

boys-turned-men. Their stories are all different…but

unfortunately, all the same. One in six boys is sexually

molested by the age of 16.

 

Glenn claims he is alive today because he finally spoke

out about his abuse, “There is no shame in being a

victim!” His strength is an inspiration. He has been there.

Today he directs a sober living facility in Los Angeles.

Glenn Kulik, the main character in the documentary, will be attending from LA

 

Laura Dare will perform from the
