1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have been victims of [some form of] physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime,” according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The new film Blink, by filmmaker Courtney Glaudé is looking at why this happens and what can be done to prevent it.

Blink is Courtney’s first feature length film on the heels of being awarded Best Short Drama Film in 2017 by the Los Angeles Short Film Festival for film, Row. Blink will follow Nailah Belle as she faces constant domestic abuse from her husband Chris. On the surface, Nailah and her partner Chris maintain the facade of an immaculate life and relationship. However, a deeper look shows that everything is not as it appears. Nailah’s class doesn’t suspect that Chris physically and verbally abuses her in the unattainable pursuit of perfection. The film explores domestic violence and the psychology behind abuse.

BLINK (The Movie)

Written And Directed by: Courtney Glaude Blinke is a feature film based on a couple struggling through domestic violence. Nailah Ross is a very strong and prideful woman that devotes her life to her classroom, her community, and her marriage. She and her husband Derek to the community would seem to be the perfect couple. But that’s only what it seems to be. No one would guess that Derek verbally and physically beats her every time a hair is out of place. Blinked goes into depth on why some choose violence as an answer to what they seem to believe is a problem. This film also goes into detail of why someone would stay and take the abuse. Blink tells the story of how the use of battery isn’t something that people just wake up wanting to do. It stems from somewhere and most of the time that somewhere is childhood.

Courtney is no stranger to abuse and bullying when he grew up in Houston’s 5th ward. In order to endure the abuse, he would escape to his imagination which is what propelled him into becoming such a compelling storyteller.

Blink is already receiving a resounding response both with local and national viewers, with Glaudé appearing as a guest on Great Day Houston, airing Feb. 2 at 9 a.m. CT. Glaude has also been chosen as a keynote speaker for indie film conferences and schools across the southern region.

“It’s such an honor for me to share my creativity with the world,” said Glaudé. “I can’t wait for more people to see what we’ve created with Blink.” With Blink, Glaudé brings his passion for filmmaking to the next level.
