Sneaker Stories (2008) 95min --  2pm
Directed by Katharina Weingartner
Three young basketball players in Brooklyn, Vienna, and Ghana are dazzled not only by hoop dreams but also by endorsement deals and sneaker lines. As they hustle to balance their dreams with reality, this
documentary also trains its lens on the corporations that capitalize on the goals of so many young men of color around the world. 

Katharina Weingartner in person with world-renown DJ and sneaker connoissuer Bobbito Garcia. Moderatated by Leslie Fields-Cruz, VP & Director of Programming, National Black Programming Consortium
 

From Fatherless to Fatherhood (2011) 96min NY Premiere! --  4:30pm
Directed by Kobie Brown
Inspired by the staggering statistic that nearly two-thirds of black children live without a father, From Fatherless to Fatherhood attempts to turn the page on absent fathers by offering snapshots of black men
who do foster quality relationships with their children. Director Kobie Brown has expanded his enlightening documentary into a movement to explore the powerful effect fatherless homes have on the
black community.
Kobie Brown in person. Q&A moderated by Ralph Scott of Social Cinema

Single Hills (2011) 75min NY Premiere! -- 6:50pm

Afraid of commitment but also scared of losing his companion, a young Brooklynite’s life spirals out of control as he embarks on a mission to win back a woman from the arms of another man in this colorful
and clever story about undefined relationships.
Wilkie Cornelius with cast members Krystal Hill and J. Kyle Manzay in person. Q&A moderated by Jozen Cummings, UntilIGet Married.com

Infiltrating Hollywood: The Rise and Fall of The Spook Who Sat by the Door (2011) 57min -- 9:30pm
Directed by Christine Acham & Clifford Ward   NY Premiere!
In 1973, the political satire The Spook Who Sat By the Door arrived amid controversy and social change, exploring the notion of militancy and black empowerment by any means necessary. This documentary—
with the help of Melvin van Peebles, Sam Greenlee, and others—adds colorful commentary and back story to one of the most significant films of the 1970s.  

Christine Acham & Clifford Ward in person. Q&A moderator: Dr. Ed Guererro, Professor of Cinema Studies, NYU

Preceded by short film Dear Me - directed by Ka'Ramuu Kush (the latest Shadow And Act Black Filmmaker Challenge winner) wherein an aspiring poet uses her relationship problems as creative fuel to overcome her writer's block.
