How does a film like this not get more attention? It has more cinematic artistry than half the crap that’s been nominated for Oscars this year….
I interviewed Andrew Dosunmu recently, and we spoke about Mother of George and the portrayal of immigrants in film among other things. He dropped some gems, which might elucidate as to why magnificent films like this do not get the attention they deserve. A lot of it has to do with cliches of immigrants in America, expectations of how Africans are supposed to be represented (usually without complexity) and the fact that people want familiar Hollywood names, and not the best person for the job who might be an unknown.

Marsha Ambrosius look what you made me do….. that Stronger Than Pride thing you did reminds me why classics are classics.
I am sorry but in this one area of life, stay in your lane.
SADE forever one of a kind!

Okay, this still needs to be steamed a bit. I blocked the individual pieces when I was done knitting them, but that was over a year ago. It hangs asymmetrically and has one button under the collar on the left and a tie on the inside on the right. The wool is gorgeous, and this pic doesn’t do it justice, but perhaps y’all can get the idea ;-)
Well done you….!!!!
I’ve posted a few D’Angelo videos from his show last year, but not this one. What a memorable night.
