About Face

ABOUT FACE is the first of a 3-part short film series that puts a different spin on the school to prison pipeline and the role of fathers of black and brown children in the disruption of that paradigm.

The work was created in tandem with the March 2019 world premiere of The Just and The Blind, an evening length performance presented to a sold out audience at Carnegie Hall, commissioned by Carnegie Hall with support from the Ford Foundation. The short film series was created to carry the timely dialogue surrounding racial profiling outside the walls of performing arts centers.

Based on original spoken word poetry by Marc Bamuthi Joseph, directed by YAK Films, and produced by Sozo Artists, About Face features choreographer, dancer and actor Drew Dollaz and musical score by Daniel Bernard Roumain.

ABOUT FACE ... puts a different spin on the school to prison pipeline and the role of fathers.
