Filmmaker Grace Lee Ramps Up Critique Of PBS Over Diversity, Ken Burns Ties, With Podcast ‘Viewers Like Us’

#TWNWorkshop alum & Peabody award-winning filmmaker Grace Lee launched a new podcast: @viewerslikeuspod -- "this series unearths the rhyming history within the public broadcasting system, explores who gets to tell America’s stories, and envisions what the future could look like if PBS centered a diversity of experiences and perspectives."

"What would it look like if public TV 📺 actually reflected the entire American public?"

Alfreda's Cinema PresentsA Powerful Thang - Metrograph

ALFREDA’S CINEMA PRESENTS
A POWERFUL THANG (1991)
DIRECTOR: ZEINABU IRENE DAVIS
AVAILABLE ON DEMAND SEP 22-27, 2021

The scarcity of healthy Black love stories in film makes the achievement of A Powerful Thang all the more remarkable. Zeinabu Irene Davis’s Midwest-set adult drama, a tender, intimate work which wholeheartedly embraces the pleasures of romantic love, was released 30 years ago. Previously and since there have been only a handful of Black American films to platform s*x as a sacred bond—it’s the “powerful thang” of the title—and fewer still made with such nuance and style. Davis stokes the chemistry between two Black characters, writer Yasmine (Asma Feyijinmi) and saxophone teacher Craig (John Earl Jelks), with appealing humor and honesty, producing a film that should be received as a revelation for generations who’ve seen (Black) love treated as an afterthought.

Programmed by Melissa Lyde (#TWNWorkshop fellow) as part of Alfreda’s Cinema.

Dear Friends and Colleagues, My Name is Siwaporn (Apple) and I am the owner of Apple Model Management (www.applemodels.com) located in Bangkok Thailand. My company has been a human rights activist and big supporter of LGBTQ in Thailand and around the world for the past two decades and in 2014 made history when we launched the first ever TRANSGENDER model division in the world and were featured in over 200 publications around the world including major ones such as the BBC, Huffington Post, The Advocate, Elle Magazine, Vogue Magazine, Vice (documentary) and others. With Covid-19 and the closure of the borders in Thailand we were hit quite hard and started a fund-raising campaign to keep the lights on and save the agency from closing down. We are in desperate need of your help to share our campaign on your social media channels and help us spread the news.
