Film industry puts spotlight on Black History Month
By Rebecca Hamill Nobrega
Locally, Ryerson University students produce a thesis film that chronicles two African-American brothers as they attempt to escape the crime surrounded streets of 1970’s Brooklyn, NY. The official teaser can be found on vimeo and the premiere of “Mannish Boy” will be at the RUFF film festival coming up in April.
Coming up for Black History Month, the Toronto Black film festival offers a refreshing and dynamic festival that promotes film focusing on the realities of the Black community around the world.
