Tell us about your experience at the Hip Hop Film Festival?
My experience was a great one, I learned new things about the culture and met with different filmmakers.
Why are stories from the culture important? Stories from the black culture are important because it reminds us of our roots and heritage, it gives us all the chance to unite and get to learn more about our diverse cultures and how we can cut across.
What projects are you working on now? Currently, I am working in pre-production for my next shoot film titled BABY BLUES, and soon to go on principal Photography for my next feature film.
Why do you think the Harlem Film House and Hip Hop Film Festival is important? The Harlem Film House and Hip Hop Film Festival are important because it is the only festival so far that is about the culture. It sells and promotes the culture, connecting Africans from different backgrounds. I don't think there is anything more important than what the festival is doing for it.
