THE STUYVESANT: Shadowboxing

A few years ago, my mother, Susan Pope released a book called “Dancing My Prayers.” My mother is a believer in using dance to fight through your issues and pain, talk to God, and release stress. “Shadowboxing” means to fight an imaginary opponent. In this video, dancer Deborah Hughes is “fighting” her pain, fear, sadness and stress away. As she dances, she start to see the baggage she was carrying and the stress of her day leave her body and joy take over.

Shadowboxing is directed by Taylor Brown and myself, and produced by Jasmine Clay. You can watch it on my new website, The Stuyvesant. Hope you enjoy.

Chris Dean’s: As I Am

As I Am

Chris Dean’s heart stopped when he was two. He died but he came back. When Chris was five, his father was murdered, riddled by more than 20 bullets in a gang shootout. At age 18, Chris gained national attention when he introduced President Barack Obama at his high school graduation. Chris is an observer and philosopher who has always had a few things to say about life from his vantage point in South Memphis. He and Emmy-Award winning filmmaker Alan Spearman walked the neighborhood for eight weeks observing and recording what became the script of As I Am. This film floats through this remarkable young man’s landscape, revealing the lives that have shaped his world. Poetic and powerful imagery, captured by Spearman and cinematographer Mark Adams, combines with the young philosopher’s trenchant observations about life.
