Read Bio


The Black Association of Documentary Filmmakers West (BADWest) proudly presents its signature fundraising event, DAY OF BLACK DOCS. It is a celebration of documentaries, which highlights the Black Experience and spotlights its filmmakers from around the world. Three sensational feature length documentaries and three rousing short documentary films will be screened. Two Gods tells the story of Hanif, a Muslim casket maker and ritual body washer who take two young men under his wing to teach them how to live better lives. Pigeon Kings takes us through the backyards of South Central Los Angeles where men are devoted to tumbling pigeons. It’s Yours: A Film on Hip-Hop and the Internet explores how it became possible to become a rap star through Twitter, YouTube, etc.

The shorts films include: See You Next Time, the intimate moments between a Chinese nail tech and her Black client. Aniya Wingate is a radiant and talented 17-year-old African American dancer from Houston, who was displaced from her home for half a year by Hurricane Harvey. Shoulders Deep translates her experience; and A Cowgirl and Her Horse introduces 11-year old London Gladney, a young girl from Southern California's black cowboy community as she spends a day at the stables getting her horse Big Red ready for an upcoming competition.
