I got a chance to catch up with Matthew Cherry, director of the Oscar Nominated Best Animated Short film, Hair Love at the African American Film Critic Association Awards where he was award Breakthrough Director. I also spoke to Producer Karen Rupert Toliver and Directors Everett Downing jr and Bruce W. Smith.
I’m going to post the interviews but nothing can say it better than the actual film. This Film is SO IMPORTANT, SO FANTASTIC and SO TOUCHING. This should be seen by all and I hope it inspires, encourages and breaks down barriers. A towering achievement for such a short film. It connects personally, culturally and universally. MUCH LOVE to HAIR LOVE

It’s been an odd summer movie season. Typically summer movies are big blockbusters, like superhero movies or sequels of Pirates of the Caribbean. While we did have some superhero movies and one Pirates sequel, we’ve also had more serious movies, like the World War II movie Dunkirk. And there have been several movies with a social message, like An Inconvenient Sequel. We talk to a Reggie Ponder, The Reel Critic about these movies and why it’s been such a different summer.
