Armand Scott in Separated at Birth

  • Armand Scott in "Separated at Birth"

Born in Chicago and raised in Monrovia, Liberia, Armand Scott was a production assistant for Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood, Devil in a Blue Dress, and Panther, before returning to Chicago and spending 10 years as a substitute teacher in the public schools.

Scott distills his teaching experience for his feature film directorial debut Separated at Birth, the story of twins raised in divergent economic circumstances, who reunite as adults on opposites sides of a carjacking. It premieres Saturday 2/6.

In a framing story, Scott plays a teacher using the twins' tale "as a springboard for he and his students to discuss the importance of career choices in life," he says. With Benjamin Gardner, Sati Word and Tamiko Powell

The Liberian Filmmakers Association presents Separated at Birth, Saturday 2/6 at 9 PM at Corpus Christi Hall, 4910 S. King Dr. $10 in advance, $15 at the door. Includes after party with DJ Shyee.
