From IMDB’s description of the upcoming feature Savannah:
‘Savannah’ tells the true story of Ward Allen, a romantic naturalist in the vein of Thoreau, a man of privilege who turned his back on a life of material comfort and a fiery romance with the love of his life to become a market hunter. With his life-long friend and business partner, a freed slave named Christmas Moultrie, Ward tried to navigate the vicissitudes of social, industrial, environmental and personal change that threatened their way of life.
The film was directed by Annette Haywood-Carter, written by Haywood-Carter and her husband Ken Carter, and produced by the following, according to IMDB:
