An addendum to last week's news that a "re-envisioned" contemporary film version of Porgy And Bess is in development, with producers Mike Medavoy and Bobby Geisler at the helm, and the Gershwin family and estate of lyricist DuBose Heyward, directly involved, which they are hoping will be "a lot better" than the 1959 film starring Sidney Poitier and Dorothy Dandridge, directed by Otto Preminger.

There's a scene in Spike Lee's "Malcolm X" (1992) where the title character recalls his mother being harassed by the Ku Klux Klan in Nebraska while pregnant with him. They shatter her windows with rifles as she frantically pleads to be left alone with her children. A white band of KKK members cover the skyline, riding off into the moon. One of the most visually striking scenes in the film, it immediately sets the context into which Malcolm was born, one that he'd spend his life combating.

It's been almost a year since I last wrote about this upcoming project from Spike Lee - a feature documentary titled Go Brazil, Go!, which will focus on the rise of that country (on the move, particularly politically and economically) on the international scene, as one of the BRIC countries, an acronym that refers to Brazil, Russia, India and China, all gradually shifting global economic power away from the so-called long-dominating developed G7 economies. It is estimated that BRIC economies will overtake G7 economies by 2027, as the balance of power gradually shifts.
