G3 VIDEO OF THE MONTH
I met Edward at the Rahway Film Festival, where I saw his moving short film, “Straight,” about a woman struggling out of heroin addiction. Edward felt compelled to make this fiction piece because of all the friends he has lost to this drug. Here, he discusses addiction as well as filmmaking.
NEWS OF THE MONTH
Mo Asumang, daughter of a black father and a white mother, talks to BBC News about her experiences making her new documentary, The Aryans, in which she confronts racists, both in Germany and among the Ku Klux Klan in America.
