Welcome to Black Bald Films

Providing inspiring stories of
past, present, and future.

Let us help you tell your story.

Black Bald Films is a Pacific Northwest company.  As an African American filmmaker, Dru Holley wants to provide inspiring stories that empower re-thinking systems that are broken. Dru is adept at putting together collaborative creative teams that share his motivation to highlight the stories of people who have largely been ignored or overlooked by past histories, and whose experiences in urgent social problems can shape the conversation for solutions and re-write what Toni Morrison called, “the master narrative” to illuminate the truth of the past.
