Brown made the 2014 LPFC competition’s top 25 with her emotionally stirring spec Trees of Peace, which centers on two Tutsi women, a Hutu woman, and a white American volunteer who develop an unbreakable bond whilst hiding in an underground storage closet during the Rwandan genocide of 1994.
Regarding her work, Brown has stated that she is passionate about telling stories that explore and illuminate the human spirit while provoking thought, introspection, and the deep longing in us all to take risks.
