Walking Home by Chad B. Hamilton

Breathe by Darye and Dija Henry

The Cycle by Michael Marantz

One of the films in the showcase, Breathe, was made by filmmakers Darye and Dija Henry. The married couple are a central Indiana family rocked by gun violence. They hope that their message in the movie will help other families experiencing the same heartache to cope with their own grief and pain of losing a loved-one to gun violence.

THE PANEL DISCUSSION

The Facebook Live event took place Saturday, July 25th, 2020. It is the first edition of a monthly discussion series that takes a close look at America from different perspectives and moderated by ImageNation Founder, Moikgantsi Kgama. The recent George Floyd national uprisings greatly influenced the topic of the first event.

The 3 initial cities selected are New York City, Chicago and Indianapolis with many additional cities across America participating. The discusison is recorded and can be viewed by clicking here.
