ABOUT THE PROJECT
Meet The Duo Leading The Film
"Tough it out." But what happens when you can’t? What happens when you are unable to live up to the standards of modern masculinity? What happens when you give up?
Invictus is an exploration of what it means to be a man while trying to live up to society’s expectations of masculinity - and the burden of darkness it ultimately leaves in one's heart.

Actor: Rodney W. Williams, a North Carolina-based actor, is well versed in the Sandford Meisner Technique. Using his background in mental health and the judicial system, Rodney has developed a keen sense for reactivity on-screen that gives way to a range of emotions.
