The first feature film about a veteran in WWII and a woman of color inventor is underway. The forensic scientist, Bessie Blount, invented assistive technologies for veterans and regular civilians. The independent film is based on articles on the history of women in technology. It was penned by Émilïe Ngombom who is an artist, philanthropist and director. In an earlier press release, it was revealed producers were interested in Jake Gyllenhaal, Matt Damon, Chris Pratt, Leonardo Dicaprio and Jared Leto as possible male co-leads. At the Tribeca Film Festival, screenwriter Émilïe Ngombom said the producers were searching for an individual with unique talents needed to portray the WWII veteran. The storyteller also stated she was compelled to tell inspiring stories that are not being made anywhere.
