Grinning Skull Short Film by Sikivu Hutchinson

Set in Los Angeles in 1946, Grinning Skull focuses on three women of color washroom attendants wrestling with the decision to unionize, bucking racism, sexism, and class discrimination at the Pacific Electric Railway subway terminal. Testing the limits of solidarity, they come face to face with years of collective rage, resentment and suspicion, forging a final alliance in the claustrophobic netherworld of serving ‘Miss Ann’.  Grinning Skull debuted as a stage play at L.A.'s Robey Theatre at the 2017 Paul Robeson Theatre Festival at the Los Angeles Theatre Center.  Starring Camille Lourde Wyatt, Cydney Wayne Davis and JC Cadena.
