September 11: I Will Dance
I Will Dance 2_thumb.jpg
I Will Dance
I Will Dance is a documentary directed and produced by Joseph East.

In a city where young peoples' fate seems predetermined by their circumstances, I Will Dance is a defiant proclamation not to be another statistic, teenage parent, or gang member. The film follows RATCo Selma's journey to New York City. There, they share their stories through an original show written and choreographed by the participants themselves. Around every corner and with every skyscraper, monument, and museum, there is a discovery. But their greatest discovery is their own voice.

"Powerful Documentary Spotlights Artists Battling Segregation In Selma." - Maddie Crum, Huffington Post

October 23: 1971
1971 is a documentary directed and produced by Johanna Hamilton.

On March 8, 1971 eight ordinary citizens broke into an FBI office in Media, Pennsylvania, a town just outside Philadelphia, took hundreds of secret files, and shared them with the public. In doing so, they uncovered the FBI's vast and illegal regime of spying and intimidation of Americans exercising their First Amendment rights.

"1971 crafts a thrilling lesson about how authoritarianism can be curbed, sometimes, by one simple and well-targeted blow." - Popmatters

November 13: Imba Means Sing
Imba Means Sing_thumb.jpg
Imba Means Sing is a documentary produced by Erin Bernhardt.

Imba Means Sing is the story of one little boy who is a big star. As the celebrity drummer from the Grammy-nominated African Children's Choir, Moses relies on his youthful resilience. Growing up in the slums of Kampala, Uganda, Moses and his family lack enough resources for him to even attend the first grade. The film is an intimate character portrait, stunningly shot and told through Moses' perspective on his one shot journey from poverty towards his dream of becoming a pilot.

"A moving and entertaining film shot from a unique visual and narrative perspective - that of the children themselves." - Kathy Eldon, Filmmaker and Activist

Visit Imba Means Sing for more information or to view the trailer.

The 2015-2016 Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers is a program of South Arts. Southern Circuit screenings are funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
