Outcast Motorcycle Club: the oldest all-black motorcycle club in America. Director Devaughn Hughson and editor Gabe Moscovitz are currently working on 'Outcast Forever', a documentary to take an in-depth look at the club, its history, its current members, their values, the brotherhood (and the misogyny? - some of them call their women "property" according to some reports). Co-producer Jason Staten tells us: "We will all work together on the road shooting interviews and putting this story together. We have a small production company in Atlanta which is called Digital Soul and we have been working to get this project on its feet and in motion for some time."
The images and teaser below were created from the work they already did, and if you'd like to support the project, you can help fund the rest of the production by clicking HERE.
The synopsis explains: "Outcast M.C. was forged from the social revolution of the Sixties, emerging from an era that gave birth to the Vietnam war, the Civil Rights movement, the Black Panther party, and the Sexual Revolution. (...) At the time, biker life was a predominantly all white counter-culture to the Peace and Love movement, but the ideals of freedom, non-conformity and loyalty weren’t exclusive to whites only and neither were the love of motorcycles and the freedom of the open road."
Sounds good... - L C-D
