- Walk a Mile in My Shoes documents filmmaker Coquie Hughes’ 16-year journey to produce her fifth feature, Granny Ballers, the story of a group of older women who enter a basketball tournament to win prize money to pay off their friend’s defaulted mortgage and save her from eviction. It exposes the experiences of being a full-time filmmaker who is also black, female, queer, poor, and a single parent who has learned to navigate her way in an industry primarily dominated by those who do not look, live, or think like her.
2001 interview Chicago independent filmmaker Hughes interspersed with clips from 18 of her films.
