We host our annual Cultural Year in Review Round Table! We discuss and examine this year’s music, movies, television, and more.
We’re joined by: Denzel Mitchell, farmer, educator, food justice advocate and political commentator; Eze Jackson, rapper, activist, and Host of “The Whole Bushel” on The Real News Network; and Ann Hornaday, Washington Post Film Critic.
We reflect on the 25th Anniversary of Director Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing. The movie will be shown this weekend at The Charles Theatre in Baltimore. We’re joined by author, filmmaker and Coppin State University professor D. Watkins; award-winning actor Roger Guenveur Smith, who played “Smiley” in Do the Right Thing; and WEAA’s own Carla Wills, Executive Producer of News and Public Affairs.
We take a sneak peak at the Maryland Film Festival! We shine a spotlight on Marshall Curry’s POINT AND SHOOT. POINT AND SHOOT follows Matt VanDyke, a 27-year-old with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder who left his home in Baltimore in 2006, bought a motorcycle and a video camera and began a three-year, 35,000-mile motorcycle trip through Northern Africa and the Middle East. We talk with Marshall Curry, Director of POINT AND SHOOT, which was winner of the Best Documentary Award at the Tribeca Film Festival and a two-time Academy Award Nominee. Curry also directed the documentaries Street Fight, Racing Dreams, and If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front. The Maryland Film Festival runs May 7-11.
