DAY 2:Re-Mixed and Re-Mastered(R2) produced by Michelle Materre.  I  look forward to Panel discussion: Who gets to tell the story? Representation, appropriation and distribution of the Black Image. I have very strong views on this matter. In fact, CINEMATIQ Magazine, takes on the challenge of debating representation behind the pen.  What are your views, does it matter who is behind the lens just as long as the story is told, or is that a part of the story? I use the same debate all the time; Two great historical films, done by people of the same race of their subjects. Would Malcolm X, the movie directed by Spike Lee be a story of “truth” if Steven Spielberg directed it? How about Schindler List, what if Spike Lee told the story.
