The Book Of Negroes:
The second secret American Revolution in 1776 freed thousand of slaves, in this historical drama. It features that rare celebrated phenomenon, a female rebel leading a victory against human bondage in America. This is a conversation with the African Canadian filmmaker Clement Virgo and female freedom fighter on screen, star Aunjanue Ellis.
A conversation with actor Dolph Lundgren delves into combating global sex trafficking as an action hero on screen, trading in brains for brawn as a former Fulbright Scholar, and how he got involved in movies by chance when asked to point a gun at Christopher Walken’s head during a visit with girlfriend Grace Jones, to the set of her James Bond movie.
