If you've been reading S&A for awhile now, you've probably noticed one name that pops up often here...Joe Doughrity.  His 2007 short film Akira's Hip Hop Shop, starring James Kyson Lee and Emayatzy Corinealdi, is a favorite by many along with Celeste Bright, a popular web series in which he directed some of the episodes.  Cornerstore, his latest production, is a comedy that's garnering much fanfare since its debut at the Pan African Film Festival last year and has been profiled a few times on S&A.
