I had a wonderful conversation on this (and several other cinema-related topics) with Ms Terri Francis, the guest editor of this specific special issue of Black Camera (an academic film journal I strongly encourage you all to subscribe to HERE) - a conversation I wish was recorded so that I could share here.

I'd actually forgotten all about this project; IMDBPro lists it as being in post-production since last November, but I suspect that there is some visual effects work that needs to be done in post, which may be why it's been in post for 8 months and counting.

Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock... as I noted in an post earlier this week... time is flying on by, as the theatrical release date for Spike Lee's latest work, Red Hook Summer, fast approaches. August 10 to be exact, almost exactly 2 months from today; it seems like it was just yesterday that I saw the film at the Sundance Film Festival, where it caused a bit of a stir (my review HERE if you missed it).

This is one film that I've been really curious about since we first profiled it last fall; I've been tracking it, hoping that it might eventually screen somewhere in my neck of the woods (NYC), but that hasn't happened yet.

Nollywood starlet Genevieve Nnaji (maybe the most internationally well-known Nollywood actress) is a name and face that I think those who are not at all Nollywood-conscious will soon start to hear more about, as she navigates her way further towards much wider, global recognition.
