EARLY WORK features films by Reelblack Founder Mike D, Chinonye Chukwu (AlaskaLand), Rel Dowdell (Changing The Game), Tanya Hamilton (Night Catches Us) and Nadine Patterson (Tango Macbeth). All have gone on to make feature films and will be on hand to discuss how film school and short filmmaking proved to be an integral step in their development. Most of these films have not been shown on the big screen since their original festival runs and are not available on YouTube.

  • THE HARDEST PART (1994, NYU, Dir. Michael Dennis, 11 min, 16mm)
  • THE KILLERS (1995, Columbia University, Dir. Tanya Hamilton, 20 Minutes, DVD)
