Gratification doesn’t always come easy with regards to the performance of one’s own projects in festivals. Nevertheless, I admit I was completely wrong in my initial expectations for “The Other Madisons”. Was I underestimating our work, the joint effort of having worked with Bettye Kearse during the production and execution of this documentary film?
But the overwhelming result it’s been a breeze of fresh air and recognition for the original story, and the film. It feels good to see all the laurels lineup, and although I’m certain “The Other Madisons” will continue to bring us the recognition the ancestors deserve, I will take a break today to celebrate the already conquered trophies. Thank you Mystic, Martha’s Vineyard, Black Truth, Roxbury, DC Black Film Festival, and Atlanta for the love and support.
