It's Only (a) Natural (rough cut of a documentary short)
by Richard Lewis and Yoland Lee
Actress Yolanda Lee has decided to cut her trademark curly natural. What starts out as a hairstyle choice sparks a heated conversation about race, relationships and charging dogs.
The Legend of Cool "Disco" Dan (rough cut of a documentary feature)
by Joseph Pattisall and Roger Gastman
Amidst the backdrop of Washington DC's former claim to fame as the murder capital of the United States and its unique urban culture centered around Go Go music, Cool "Disco" Dan emerged as an underground celebrity in the late 1980s and early 1990s. He graffitied his moniker all over the city until it seemed as though no wall, rooftop, street sign, or Metro bus had been forgotten. Somehow he managed to survive while legions of his peers were killed, incarcerated, or became utterly adrift. This film looks back at Washington DC's own folk hero and what has become of him today.
