Good Morning Lovelies,
I got a Special Recognition for DRY at the Los Angeles City council ahead of Pan African Film & Arts Festival (PAFF) Screening
Dry, in 2019 is still making great impact around the world. The movie has been selected to screen for the second time at the highly coveted Pan African Film & Arts Festival (PAFF) in Los Angeles, USA this February, and as a prelude to the festival, I was recognized at the first ever Blacks In Cinema presentations and proclamations . The event took place at the Los Angeles City Council Chambers yesterday. ......
Los Angeles City Council President Herb J. Wesson kicked off the Black History Month by honoring the actors and filmmakers who paved the way for people all walks of life to be represented in film. With the help of some legendary African-American actors and filmmakers, the day was officially proclaimed #BlacksInCinema in Los Angeles.
In 2016, Dry won Best Narrative Feature at the PAFF. It screens again on Feb 9th, Feb 13th and Feb 18 with an interactive session after the opening night. The movie has made immense positive impact across the world in changing the narrative concerning child marriage and other forms of social injustice. It was recalled to the festival this year due to its world-class production quality and continuous importance in global human rights advocacy.
Thanks Council President Herb Wesson's for the presentation in council chambers and organizing the AAHM exhibit Blacks In Cinema.
Facciamo un altro tuffo nel passato con questa foto della prima edizione del nostro festival che ritrae Silver intento a disegnare e firmare dediche.
Il tema centrale del PAFF 2016 è stato quello della comicità ed in particolare Silver nel suo intervento ci ha parlato del funzionamento della comicità dell’assurdo.

“ALITA - ANGELO DELLA BATTAGLIA” è nelle sale dal 14 febbraio e speriamo l’abbiate già visto o abbiate quantomeno intenzione di andarci, perché, fidatevi, ne vale la pena.
Ma avete mai letto il bellissimo manga da cui ha tratto ispirazione il film girato da Robert Rodriguez con l’appoggio produttivo di nientemeno che James Cameron?
Se avete bisogno di una motivazione in più per addentrarvi in questo manga che ha scosso il mondo del fumetto giapponese alla sua pubblicazione ed è diventato un fenomeno in oriente come in occidente, eccovi un gustoso articolo di Fumettologica che parla della sua storia, del suo concepimento e del suo mangaka, Yukito Kishiro.

Evaluation and moralizing through a European lens...
I recall growing up and hearing about what Hollywood said "voodoo" was. I recall adult conversations in a whispered voice "she practice voodoo" referring to an elder name Ms. Vick... Then fast foward to my African American Studies cinematography class and I learned there is so much unlearning of what Hollywood and media has feed the mind about our history and our stories ..."The story of vodoo could never faithfully be told"~ Djimon Hounsou
This film is certainly eye opening and thought provoking beyond a superficial level, even from a dietary standpoint... are animals not sacrificed for meat consumption as your daily bread? What is the symbolism of communion?... it's all in how one package it... "In Search of Voodoo is an origin story. It weaves together a personal, cultural, and spiritual journey - capturing the vibrant tales of Voodoo, West Africa, and Benin’s favorite son, actor Djimon Hounsou. Following Hounsou back to the country of his birth, it’s the story of a man rediscovering the core of his past and the lessons that the world can learn from a vibrant, yet misrepresented way of life.
Spirituality, in all its forms, represents the cornerstone of everyday life for billions across the globe. In Search of Voodoo seeks to illuminate the practice of faith that is prevalent within West Africa and the African Diaspora. There is a dark and unfair mythology surrounding the central tenants of that faith that we believe this project can help dispel.
Voodoo is an organic belief system that values the most positive aspects of nature and life". ~ insearchofvoodoo.com
I’ve been asked many times how it feels to see my name on the screen and to be honest it’s different each time. When I first decided to write the book there were people close to me who doubted and had me doubting myself but I knew it was meant to happen. It was even more laughable when I decided to make it a film. LOOK AT ME NOW!!!! SMASHING GOALS AND SHIT!!! If you ask me today I will say I’M PROUD OF MYSELF!!! AND I WOULD TELL ANYONE ELSE WHO WANTS TO DO SOMETHING TO STOP AGREEING WITH WHAT THEY THINK OF YOU!!! THEY DON’T KNOW HOW THEY FEEL ABOUT THEMSELVES SO KEEP GOING! IT MAY TAKE AWHILE BUT THERE IS LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL!! #survivor#fortheloveofmusiq#author#producer#grouphome#selflove#paff#believeinyourself
