Cy Dodson - 13 mins | USA, 2018

Shining a light on the resurgence of outward white supremacy, one Ohio tattoo artist is challenging his community by saying “bring me your mistakes”. Beneath the Ink is a timely look at hate and racism in one Appalachian community that reveals heartfelt stories of change and redemption.

Competition International Documentary


I have been in the storytelling business for over two decades and Beneath the Ink is my third film in five years. I would consider this my most compelling and inspiring film to date. My past two efforts with My Last Breath and The Ragman - A Hobo's Story Untold garnered a total of 7 Film Festival Awards and a Midwest Regional Emmy for Best Documentary. I currently reside in Minnesota as Owner/Operator of my production company Triumph Pictures, LLC where I specialize in documentary style marketing and branding content.
