Tony Hall (left at the table), an award winning writer, director and producer living in Trinidad and Tobago, is producing a film titled Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael) Dances in the Fire! See the following links for three of his productions: “Miss Miles” the Woman of the World, Monster March and Dish Ran Away with the Spoon.
Dion Boucard, an award winning and accomplished videographer also from Trinidad & Tobago, is assisting him in this production. See the following links for two of his video projects: Prepared to Fight and Justice for Children March.
On August 24-25, 2013, Nagib Malik, Umilta Lucre and Lynette Kelly (left to right), Kwame’s sisters, Austin Letren, his cousin and Ismael Lucre, his brother-in-law interviewed as part of the research process the film. Other interviews will be conducted later. The edited footage will be used in the trailer and 2-hour, full feature film.
Rocka and Sony Boy, Nagib’s daughter and son-in- law, hosted the video shoot, and a dinner and film party for several of Kwame’s friends in the Miami area. Members of the All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC) and several of Kwame’s co-workers and supporters donated monies to cover the travel expenses of Kwame’s Family. We thank them!
The Trinidad and Tobago Film Company awarded the Kwame Ture Film Project a modest grant. Its stamp of approval is priceless. It will finance the production of our 6-minute trailer.
