B2: Hotlist! #70

Greetings Community,

I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday with your friends and family.  In our busy day to day it is always a blessing to be able to take time to spend with our loved ones near and far.

A few weeks ago I was introduced to a young man who is an actor and looking to connect with a community of liked mind individuals.  I invited him to send me his email and I would add him to our group.   So please welcome:

Jonathan Victorian

 

And now please enjoy the latest installment of the B2: Hotlist!  Please share with your social medias and email lists; fb, twitter, etc.  And as also please make your reservations in advance and I’ll see you all behind the lights!

As Always,

Kevin-Anthony

BLACK WALL STREET

In 1921, in a small community in Tulsa Oklahoma, there was a Black paradise called Greenwood.  This community consisted of Blacks, who fled the oppression of the South; to carve out for themselves their place in history.  They formed a peculiar society of Blacks, Indians and Jews, who respeted and did business with each other.  In time, some of the Blacks who happened to settle on oil rich land became incredibly wealthy.  So wealthy, in fact, that the town was soon known as Black Wall Street.  In a mere 36 block section of town, these African-Americans owned and operated up to 600 thriving businesses.

One of the most popular of these businesses was Old Lady Boley’s, an eating establishment which is where our play begins.  One Sunday evening, the town’s more influential citizens gathered to have their pictures taken for the local newspaper; in honor of the community’s 20th anniversary.  Before the play ends, the entire community of Greenwood is completely burned to the ground.  In a 12 hour period, a major Black economic movement is halted.

5X FAVELA: NOW BY OURSELVES | 2010
BRAZIL | PORTUGUESE WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES | 96 MINUTES

5x Favela is composed of five short films all written, directed, and acted by promising artists from the favelas of Brazil’s Rio. The culmination of a years-long project to cultivate talented young filmmakers from the favelas (slums), 5x Favela’s well-crafted episodes offer a rare glimpse of the dynamic culture emerging from these communities, debunking the popular myth that favelas are merely hotbeds of drugs and violence. 5x Favela includes:

Source of Income

Rice and Beans (Cacau Amaral, Rodrigo Felha)
Wesley, a young boy, listens to a confession by his father: he is tired of the household menu, always consisting of a plate filled with rice and stewed beans. The boy, joined by his friend Orelha, decides to find some money to buy a chicken.

Concert for Violin (Luciano Vidigal)
The children Márcia, Jota and Ademir vow to remain friends forever. Later, in their adulthood, Jota is involved in drug trafficking while Ademir has joined the police force. If the two are brought against each other, Márcia may be prevented from fulfilling her dream to play the violin.

Let It Fly
 (Cadu Barcellos)
Flávio lets his friend’s kite fall across the other quarter of the favela, which is run by a rival gang. Even though he is aware of the prohibition, Flávio decides to collect the kite.

Let There Be Light
 (Luciana Bezerra)
On Christmas Eve, the shanty town hill has been out of power for three days. The engineers who have been sent over by the power utility company have not managed to fix the problem. The residents kidnap one of the engineers, taking him as a hostage until the light supply is restored.
