Mourning the loss of my cinematic brother, Jamaa Fanaka who passed away yesterday. He is one of the LA Rebellion filmmakers - the only student to ever have made 3 feature films at UCLA and to also make money from them. He was a good soul, he will be missed, but earns his "secular immortality" (a term he came up with in my interview with him) with his films and his fight for better representation of Black directors with the DGA. Ashe, Jamaa!
