Join The Podcast Discussion of “Dark Girls” with Channsin Berry and Bill Duke Thursday Night, September 29

Duke and Berry at the Toronto International Film Festival this summer.

This is from Shadow and Act:

Normally, the S&A live podcast is Wednesday but we’ve made a change to THURSDAY nights.  Same show, same time (8:00pm/est) and today we plan to air our very enlightening interview with the producers of Dark Girls, D. Channsin Berry and Bill Duke.

They reveal what kind of feedback they’ve received especially from black women, the impetus for the film and their hopes of bringing a male version into fruition.  We also touched on the black film industry and how we need more “conquers” in our community.

Along with the interview, we plan to talk about HOT TOPICS!  Slated for the podcast:

-We’ll continue the discussion on Dark Girls
-Do blacks in the film industry (actors, directors, producers, etc…) exacerbate the problem concerning lack of diversity when they avoid the “burden of representation” issue?
-What’s your “Must See” television show?

Don’t forget to tune in today (Thursday) at 8:00pm/EST (7:00 Central Time, 5:00 Pacific Time) and call us at (347) 215-8777.  Please go HERE to listen and log into the Blogtalk chat room because that’s hilarity you won’t wanna miss as well.  See ya there!

Please do join the discussion and talk directly to the directors themselves regarding this film.

The official film website is here.

The film’s fansite is here; find out when Dark Girls comes your way.
