TRT: 60 Minutes.
- Aaron Ingram and Curtis John of ActNow Foundation and writer/director talked about the upcoming quarterly film screening series at BAM Cinemas.
- And, another bloggers roundtable. I was joined by Daryle Lockhart of TheBlackBoxOffice.com, Karen G. of ReelArtsy.blogspot.com, Jo-Issa of BlackFilmAcademy.com, and Sergio Mims (Ebony/Jet film columnist).
Topics we discussed:
- "She's Gotta Have It" 23 years later. Would it still impress as it did the year it was released?
- Cuba Gooding Jr and Terence Howard lead ensemble cast in George Lucas's Tuskeegee Airmen film.
- Angela Bassett gets behind the camera for the first time, adapting Percival Everett's novel, Erasure.
- Taraji P Henson, Kerry Washington, Angela Bassett, and other black actresses. Who's getting steady work? Why/why not?
- "Medicine For Melancholy" VS "A Good Day To Be Black & Sexy;" distribution and box office compare/contrast.
