A native of California, Kal has dreams of taking her poems to New York and the infamous Nuyorican stage.

    It was an excellent film - that's a good start for me with it being my first time. The only thing I would say is that it was a little too loud the volume which meant that there were lines I could not hear.

    That was a beautiful movie well worth the trek and battling wind and rain from Essex. This movie remains me of neo soul in that it spoke to my sprit and I keep replaying bits of it in my head, took me back to seeing She's Got To Have It, my quest continues to get a copy.

    Sorry, I had to vanish so quickly afterwards. I enjoyed the film. Though there is a happy ending, there is an element of domestic violence in the film, as mentioned by Tendai. The female lead was beautifully played... and well, what can I say about the brother with whom she eventually fell in love with at the end. More of those sensitive, sensible guys needed:)...and yes, alright, it didn't hurt that he was an eye candy. That film might even have been a nice one to be followed by a debate...

    My memory isn't as good as it ought to be so those of you I can remember like Marie-Lyne, Tokes, Selima, Omoye, Remi, Elaine, Vashti, Funke, and anyone else I've failed to mention, a massive thank you for a lovely evening. The Brotha who called me to say him and his partner were rounding off their evening by watching the film with us, we are honoured. Thank you.

    I really enjoyed this movie. High hopes that the next one will be just as good.

    Tendai, the film is about a woman in search of her dream. It is not about domestic violence.

  • Tendai

    Am I correct to say this film is about Domestic Violence? Not the most uplifting theme for Valentines - a day which may be lonely for some - but I trust it's a good and positive film all the same? X

    Our partnership agreement with The Mella Centre Management was that we'd raise awareness of their business centre and we chose to offer free entry, for a limited period. Like any growing concern our model is based on providing a quality service that our members will invest in. If our community wishes to ensure we continue to experience seeing the wealth of stories celebrating ourselves on our terms, we have to start spending in African owned institutions. BCC charge £5 The Vue charge £11:50 and then some. We programme a wealth of black films and reinvest our own and box office back into realising African ownership of exhibiting space and film distribution. The Vue programmes the same typical stories and gives nothing back to the African community. Those who do not wish to support and invest in developing something for themselves and future generations, this club is simply not for them. Those who do and want to be entertained and can network/ make friends too. This is for them.

      £5 was the donation I'd make on the free nights and this worthy cause at £5 is excellent value for money. It's great to know it's being invested back within our community- really really warm to this venue!

    Hey Beloved. The FILM FRIDAY series has been just one of the concepts we've been meaning to implement for some time now but never found the right location/venue.

    Blessed Greetings One and all,

    Jide, I have just notice that there is a fee. I thought you were not looking to have a set fee for your film nights has this change because of the management of the Pheonix? I do think it is a good idea, we will just have to see who turns up. I hope and pray that people will come out to support what your doing and realize that their money is going to a worthy cause.
