Debt to Society is a micro-budget short film, produced in part by the Film Technician Training Program at Santa Fe Community College in Santa Fe, New Mexico for the Summer 2011 semester.
Set in a prison in a harsh future time, a prisoner pays a dear price when his number comes up in a prison lottery.
Principal photography was done in Santa Fe and in Espanola, New Mexico.
Laughing Crow is delighted to have original music written and performed by Rene Reyes in Debt to Society. Rene has licensed songs to over a dozen films including Price of Glory (Jimmy Smits), Saving Silverman, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Collateral (Tom Cruise) and Seven Pounds (Will Smith).
