Phillip Loken with Gee's Bend


Photographer, Phillip Loken, has devoted his time to his first documentary film, "Gee's Bend: Welcome To The Hole". They are currently accepting donations for their next largest expense, the sizzle reel, and have set a goal of $5,000 to fund that reel.


Below is the log line for the film:


Gee’s Bend, Alabama, also known as Boykin, is an African-American majority community in the rural American South most notably known for its rich, intergenerational legacy of quilting. “Gee’s Bend: Welcome To The Hole” gives an insider’s perspective on the nuances that have shaped this region and the lives of those living in it.

  • A full pitch deck (including a synopsis, budget, reasons why this film is different from other films with similar subject matter, our impact strategy, and much more) is available upon request.

  • If you are interested in making a tax-deductible donation, we would prefer a check or wire transfer (donation forms available upon request) for larger amounts, but we can also accept one-time, monthly, and/or annual donations through this PayPal link:

  • Contact Information: Phillip Loken (Director, Producer, & Co-Director of Photography): Contact@KingPhill.us
