Let’s be honest, for the most part, unless the film stars Kevin Hart or deals with slavery, the mainstream media, and in particular television, doesn’t focus much on black films, except for those predictable "The Year of Black Cinema" type articles which appear every few years or so.

And it’s even rarer for short black films. Which is why it was unusual and refreshing to see that MSNBC’s Joy-Ann Reid, on her network program, "The Reid Report," actually took the time out to profile "Muted" with the filmmakers - director Rachel Goldberg, producer Tara Tomicevic and writer/actress Brandi Ford.

The powerful film, which was fully funded through a very successful Kickstarter campaign, stars Chandra Wilson of "Grey’s Anatomy," Daniele Watts and Malcolm-Jamal Warner. It tells the story of a black mother whose young daughter is missing, as she struggles, not only with the anguishing search for her daughter, but also with the media’s indifference to her situation - a plight that I don’t need to tell you has been shared by many black parents.

The film recently had its world premiere at the American Black Film Festival in the HBO Short Film Competition, which has a broadcasting deal with HBO that will start in February 2015.

    Three beautiful ladies who know how to present themselves and their film. What's the production company?

    I love this interview and I think the concept is great. But the one scene they had shown looks so weak. I just hope it's just that scene.
