The Champion: A New Play Inspired by the Life of Nina Simone
A new play by Brooklyn playwright Amy Evans, created with UK-based director Mark Rosenblatt and actor Noma Dumezweni, The Champion is inspired by the life of Nina Simone, and offers a rare look into the heart and mind of an artist known as much for her indictment of American racism as her artistic brilliance. This short film features Joy Jones in the role of Nina Simone and was recorded at Smash Studios in New York.
The Most Unsatisfied Town
In April 2010, an early version of The Most Unsatisfied Town, a new play based on the true story of Oury Jalloh, was presented at the ICI Kulturlabor Institute of Cultural Inquiry in Berlin. It was performed by Label Noir, an ensemble of Afro-German performers and featured Martha Fessehatzion, Michael Ojake, Moses Leo, and Lara-Sophie Milagro. This short film was shot by Thabo Thindi at jozi.tv.
