BFI African Odyssey Film Screening: Once Upon A Time When We Were Colored and Chameleon Street

On Saturday 16th February 2013, I went to BFI Southbank to see the double screening of ‘Once Upon a Time..When We Were Colored’ and ‘Chameleon Street’. I really enjoyed both films and was glad that the community came out to support the event. Tim Reid introduced a short film that he worked on with 12 aspiring filmmakers titled ‘Hear My Son’ made by Legacy Media Institute Fellows. The film is about a mother’s struggle to cope after the loss of her son to violent crime 12 months after his death. A truely emotional film (had tears flowing) which made me think about Trayvon Martin’s mother and what she is going through as we come up to the anniversary of his death. I really enjoyed both films and would recommend them to all.
