To Crush A Flower Ft. Christopher Foster


Freshman, Christopher Foster, starred in an independent film To Crush A Flower that premiered May 3rd to audiences at the Senate Theater in Detroit. 

This movie is based on true events and very sensitive topics such as racism, death, and optimism that are brought up throughout the movie. Shorians can catch their classmate’s feature role on streaming services like Tubi and Prime Video.

Foster has been acting in this movie for about 5 years. He was 9 years old when he got the main role in this movie. The movie is about racism, death, and optimism. 

Foster is the main character. He plays a young boy who experiences racism as well as neglect from his drug-addicted mother. The movie is actually about the childhood of the producer. 

Foster was interested in this role because he feels as if playing as characters gives him a different perspective of life, and maybe how it could be for other people. 

To Crush A Flower was Foster’s first paid acting job. Foster is in other acting activities such as the Detroit Youth Choir, Lake Shore High School’s Choir, and Lake Shore High School’s Production of Grease. 

You can see Foster on stage at the Lake Shore High School auditorium from May 16th through 18th. Tickets are $10-$12 per person or watch his movie trailer here:
