Our prices are graded according to type of organization and it is possible to obtain a commercial license so you can charge an entrance fee.
SCREENING: 14 June 2019 (Friday) at noon, as part of the San Francisco Black Film Festival.
The screening will be held in the Nia Room of the African American Art & Culture Center (San Francisco, CA, USA).
The photo to the left shows artist Hershell West sitting on scaffolding to work on a mural. The telling of his story is intended to inspire. The documentary has three principal themes: -1- how a black man can overcome obstacles to achieve his goals; -2- the importance of public art, art education and arts advocacy; and -3- the possibilities open to an artist who does not achieve the fame of a Picasso or a Jackson Pollack.
The documentary is particularly appropriate for university and college Art plus African-American Studies Departments; for local arts groups, art centers, and public libraries; and for local organizations focused on the achievements of African-Americans.
