Join me Monday, June 10th at 6 p.m. Pacific/9 Eastern on Radio Enso. My guest will be documentary filmmaker Maja Bugge, the Director & Producer of the new film ABOUT MEN which captures a group of men exploring their vulnerable selves through a men’s group in North Idaho. We’ll also be joined by Owen Marcus, who founded the group featured in the film. About: Eight men sit in a circle every Wednesday night, and fall and catch each other as challenges are faced. The film portrays Chris, Robert, Wayne and Thomas who are on their individual journeys toward realizing their purposes in life. Rookie Chris frees himself from the burden of his estranged father, while the group’s oldest member, Robert, reaches for courage to embrace his relationship to his girlfriend. For Wayne and Thomas, the group is the ultimate support, as Wayne faces the loss of his business and Thomas faces the loss of his father. About Maja Bugge: ABOUT MEN is Maja’s first documentary film production. Facilitating people’s stories she builds up trust with her subjects and allows for the subjects themselves to reflect upon their own story. Maja Bugge was born in a commune in 1985 just outside of Copenhagen and holds a BA in Communications and Cultural Encounters from Roskilde University. In 2012 she graduated from The New School in NYC with an MA in Media Studies. Her multifaceted previous work experience ranging from public school teaching to political communications to horse massage therapy has inspired her to explore human stories that impact her and the audience’s view of themselves.
What happens when you’re a highly creative person trapped in the body of a hard working corporate manager? In part 3 of my series on NJ Filmmakers, we’ll meet Antoinette Hadgis, an aspiring filmmaker. Toni studied math in college and eventually enjoyed a successful career for many years as a manager in a corporate environment. She was highly focused on her work and an excellent problem solver. There was definitely some measure of creatively involved in solving problems but not enough to satisfy Toni’s longing for an artistic challenge – like making a film. To nurture her creative side, Toni took a few classes and was hooked on the idea of working in film in some capacity. A few years as a volunteer with the Garden State Film Festival, afforded Toni an opportunity to see the power of independent films. Her well honed business skills seemed to make her a natural as a producer, but Toni was especially drawn to the storytelling aspect and clearly visualized herself in the director’s chair. To get some initial experience Toni joined a Meet-Up group in NY and worked with a crew under the guidance of an experienced producer/director. Together the group created a short film and this experience helped Toni crystallize her goal to become a filmmaker. So what’s next? Toni is planning to start a Meet-Up group in NJ to draw in other like-minded people who can work on a film project – most likely with her at the helm. Toni will share her path from corporate life to aspiring filmmaker. In parts 1 and 2 of this series, we met two very different filmmakers who shared their personal journeys and how they achieved their goals. Toni has a ways to go, but I’m betting on her success. After the interview, check out After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for additional information.

WHO IS T. ALIKA HICKMAN?
Born in New York, raised in New Orleans, I have seen many trials in my lifetime. However, it is from these trials that I have become the strong, determined female that I am. Having suffered 2 brain aneurysms and a stroke by the tender age of 32, my confidence was shattered. Before this situation happened, I was a hip hop artist signed to Suave House/Universal records, worked with Jazzy Pha, Jagged Edge, Kandi from Escape and Real Housewives of Atlanta, and more. I was actually about to sign a deal in L.A. with Peaty Pablo & Suge Knight about a week before I had my first brain aneurysm.

Based out of Berkeley, California - Tamara Perkins shares the stories of two men, Noel and Harrison, who were incarcerated with a life sentence as juveniles. After being imprisoned for decades these two men get a chance of Life After Life and are released.
In this interview we have the opportunity to bear witness to the struggle, hope, and truth that isn't a part of the traditional public safety rhetoric. In my conversation with Ms Perkins we learn who really lives behind bars and how the incarceration system plays a role in systemic and institutional racism.
Through this nearly 20-minute edited discussion Tamara describes the humanity of men and women who have been labeled as less than human by the treatment and public disregard they endure.
When a person becomes incarcerated in our society too often we forget they exist. As Tamara stated, "it's just that one act" that defines the incarcerated. Too often, those who are behind bars are labeled for their crime rather than their humanity.
In her film Life after Life Tamara takes us through the experiences of two men who have been given life sentences and later released. Listen to Dr Crain's interview with Tamara Perkins to learn about their journey to justice and healing.

Baseball. The National Pastime. Cooperstown and the legends within still provide romance and mystique for baseball fans everywhere. Babe Ruth said, “Every strike brings me closer to the next home run.” Andrew Lilley is a NJ filmmaker with the mission of bringing timeless stories to film so they endure. Well, Andrew hit a metaphoric home run himself with his debut film I’ll Knock A Homer For You: The Timeless Story of Johnny Sylvester and Babe Ruth -- he won the recent Garden State Film Festival’s Home Grown Documentary Feature award. Andrew, a 2008 graduate of NY Film Academy, found inspiration for this timeless story right within his family. Johnny Sylvester was his father’s uncle, and Andrew first heard the story directly from his own father. It’s a classic tale of a sick boy, Johnny Sylvester, and The Babe promising him to hit a homer for him during the 1926 World Series. There is the Hollywood version of this legendary story, and there is the unembellished version which is still amazing. And this is what Andrew Lilley, Founder and CEO of Loose Gravel Films, has portrayed so well in his documentary. The tale of Johnny Sylvester also has a Jersey Shore connection. While at a rented house in Bay Head, NJ during the summer of 1926, Sylvester was horseback riding when he was thrown to the ground along with his horse. The horse tried to stand and kicked Sylvester’s head. The injury progressed and by Sept he was diagnosed with osteomyelitis in his skull. And exactly how did The Babe get involved in all this? We’ll have Andrew explain this part of the story, as well as why he decided to make this particular film and what was the experience like for him. This interview is Part 1 in a series on NJ filmmakers. After the interview, please check out After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for additional information.
