My People – #blackmendream
#blackmendream (2014) is an experimental documentary that creates a virtual “safe space” through hashtagging, enabling black males to pull apart emotional restrictions often denied through crossroads of race and gender. The film, shot in black and white, features nine males from diverse backgrounds with their backs turned away from the camera. They openly discuss the obstacles they have faced as young black men, such as depression, parental neglect and racial discrimination. 45 minutes.
Featuring special guest and filmmaker, Shikeith. All are welcome to join the screening via Google Hangout. Watch the film, meet the filmmaker and join the discussion.
