Intrinsic Value Films, in association with Corner to Corner Productions, are premiering Delila Vallot’s Mighty Ground will make its world premiere at the 2017 Los Angeles Film Festival (LAFF), which runs from June 14, 2017 – Jun 22, 2017.
The second documentary feature from the multitalented Delila Vallot, “Mighty Ground” follows homeless singer Ronald Troy Collins who makes his way through his days singing to people on the streets of downtown Los Angeles. Enchanted, listeners find themselves making a deep and unfathomable connection with Ronald that crosses racial and economic lines. Recognizing that they need to hear his song as much as he needs to sing it to them, they stay. This is exactly what happened to producer of the film, Aimee Schoof, in January of 2016. What began as a random encounter on a downtown LA street quickly turned into a tale of vitality, heartbreak and ultimately, redemption for all involved.
As is the case for most of the homeless, Ronald is nearly invisible to the majority of passers-by, with all but a few refusing to even acknowledge his presence. But those who stop to listen find themselves captivated by the depth of his prophetic voice, and by the mystical songs he composes on the spot and directs at the listener’s soul.
Picking up where the homeless as mere statistics drop off, “Mighty Ground” captures those auspicious moments when the people Ronald has sung into his life collectively support and pray for his transformation, but the weight of his addiction threatens to derail his chances for redemption and recovery.
Delila Vallot says of the film, “This film captures a personal journey to redemption while shining a light on the societal growing problem of homelessness.”
Vallot directs “Mighty Ground”; Aimee Schoof and Isen Robbins produce.
