Sometimes it feels good to just not have a camera in my hand, and watch a screening of something I had worked on, in the company of others. That’s what happened in the fall of 2019 at Eaton DC. The screening theatre was intimate, perfect for a independent film screening.

Christylez Bacon, Cissa Paz, Pablo Fagundes, Gemal Woods, and Valerio Xavier.

Christylez organized a screening for the documentary, “Washington Sound Museum: Hip-Hop Meets the Music of Brazil” and treated the crowd to a performance with musicians featured in the documentary after the screening. It was a success. Just weeks before, we did a screening in Brazil with Portuguese subtitles, so this was icing on a project that was a lot of fun to create.

Still from Documentary

I will spend the next few months considering what could be next for me in the realm of documentary filmmaking. As much as I enjoy the approach of producing for a documentary, it can be a shadowy process of discovery. This project was a little easier on that aspect because I documented mostly planned events. I saw the light at the end of the tunnel and it was produced in a way that we weren’t looking for any surprises.
