We're happy to report that we're completing work on Faith in the Hood, a one hour documentary about religion in the inner city. The bulk of the film was shot a few years ago in "Southeast," the poorest neighborhood in Washington, D.C., where we documented the work of several churches and ministires. More recently, we filmed some amazing interviews with leading scholars on the subject of black religion, including Eddie Glaude of Princeton, Wallace Best of the Harvard Divinity School and Rev. Eugene Rivers of the Ella Baker House in Boston.s The goal of the film is to draw a portrait of the people of the inner city as seen through the prism of their spirituality. We'll be finishing the film by the end of the year and plan to enter it in film festivals in 2012.
Recently, we completed a short video for the Center for the Consitution at James Madison's Montpelier. The Center sponsored a series of meetings with a visiting group of attorneys from Zimbabwe, including several scholars and consultants, to assist them in their efforts to write a new constitution for the nation of Zimbabwe. The vid is up on the web.
