The Anthem of our Souls

Cast: Joshua Barker, Ramona Be, Patricia Deanna, Lejon Eason, Britton Hein, Michael McClelland
Crew: Jahmal Holland, True Milliner, PeQue Brown

In the summer of 2017, LIQUID Arts and Productions LLC completed a film and community mural in the city of Watts, California, for a project titled The Anthem of Our Souls.
The Anthem of Our Souls is a film which combines the creative process of a community collaborative mural, with stories depicting the issues on the hearts of the collaborators.
The stories arise from individual experiences, community concerns and reflections on cultural history. As the film winds through the mural’s creation, many of the artists and contributors involved lead us through individual vignettes, which provide a closer look into the profoundly personal concerns and experiences which inspired the art.Instead of “Talking Head” interviews, the storytellers use poetry, song, drama and rap to communicate the film’s points of view.  BUY TICKETS

A moment in time to fight for this job, to prove she is talented, attractive and good enough to be noticed. Amongst the situational tension, it seems her dramatic and genuine depth of a performance may not be enough to stand out in hope of securing a role. She knows what she must do. She understands what is expected of her. What extremes must women go to for an opportunity to have an opportunity? BUY TICKETS

Crew: Adrian Nava, Sandra Lopez

Stay Brown is about a larger-than-life former lowrider named Che from the Mission District of San Francisco.
