We had a lovely time at the Museum of the Moving Image on Friday August 15th 2014. The weather was perfect. The audience was divine. The location of the museum is in Astoria Queens right next to Kaufman Film Studios. Thanks to Warrington Hudlin for inviting us to be a part of his Changing the Picture series. Here are photos from the event by Joanie Cordova aka @ForCommunities. You can follow her on Twitter and Tumblr at that address. Our event coincided with a screening of work by Hong Kong film legends Patrick Lung Kong and Tsui Hark, “The Story of a Discharged Prisoner”. Thanks to Tim Wynn for moderating an exciting Q&A; Mike Dennis of ReelBlack for documenting the Q&A; and Mike Hodge, President of New York’s SAG-AFTRA for bringing his colleagues to the event. And thanks to producer Marlene Patterson for making Tango Macbeth possible!
