AN ACT OF TERROR
Harlem Premiere
Director: Ashley Paige Brim
Country: USA, Running Time: 16 min
The true story of Virginia Christian, a 16-year-old African American girl accused of murder in the Jim Crow South.

IAGO
New York Premiere
Director: Amit Bhalia
Country: USA, Running Time: 21 min
Los Angeles, 1969. Authorities have laid siege upon the Black Panther Party and killed General Othellos most trusted lieutenant. The painful loss pushes the valiant leader to broker a truce with the police and direct his troops to serve their community. In aid of this peace, Othello appoints Cassio his new second-in-command, passing over Iago, and leaving himself vulnerable to a secret campaign to reignite the violence. Boiling with jealousy and power-hungry narcissism, Iago sets in motion a devilish plan to undo Othello, Cassio and Othellos secret wife, Desdemona.

KENNY
Director: Lukas Korver
Country: USA, Running Time: 14 min
Kenny was one of the first NFL players to begin kneeling in protest of racism, inequality, and social injustice back in September 2016. He continues that protest today.  This film explores the why behind his actions, his league-leading commitment to bettering the world around us through activism, and the extensive work he does in communities in need all around the country.



PRIZEFIGHTER
Harlem Premiere
Director: Lyndon J Barrios
Country: USA, Running Time: 6 min
The story of legendary heavyweight champion Jack Johnson, the first African American heavyweight boxer to win the title and hold the crown, from 1908-1915. It spans the period between 1910 to 1946, recreating his infamous 'fight of the century' with Jim Jefferies, the great white hope, to his untimely death following a blatant act of racial discrimination at a secluded roadside diner. In between, it touches on the tumultuous relationship with his first wife, Etta Duryea, from 1909 to its end on September 11, 1912. Etta was white, signifying the brashness of Johnson's character to blatantly defy such taboos and racist norms in early 20th century America. Prizefighter is also an artistic and technical achievement in that in combines old school techniques of classic stop-motion animation with new school shooting methods and equipment. It's shot entirely on iPhone 4s, 5s and 6s with the Stop Motion Studio app. As well as edited on the phones with a series of apps from iMovie to VideoLeap. My studio is quite literally in my pocket. So it is also a lesson to other aspiring artists to use the tools at your disposal. You'd be amazed at what incredible things you can achieve.

UNALIENABLE RIGHTS
New York Premiere
Director: Froilan Cuesta
Country: USA, Running Time: 14 min
In Philadelphia there was a small, vibrant liberation organization that helped forge communalism and voiced the continued struggle for civil rights. The MOVE organization led by John Africa, a
philosophical, magnetic and mesmerizing man, was able to lead a group in unison with the hopes of achieving the ultimate humanistic utopia - connecting as one with nature and ridding the land of racism and police brutality.  On May 13, 1985 the city did the unthinkable and firebombed the MOVE home in West Philadelphia destroying 60 houses and killing 11 people; including John Africa, five other adults and five children.
