    THIS IS IYANNA JONES w/Stacey Muhammad & Robbie Morgan

    in Entertainment

    “This Is Iyanna Jones” is a show that discusses all things political, creative and creatively political.
    Our guests are artists, entrepreneurs, activists, and world changers who Defy Containment, Destroy the Illusion and Crush the Machine!
    We are talking to the uber talented writer and filmmaker Stacey Muhammad and the dynamic and powerful star of her  upcoming  7 Part Web Series Robbie Morgan about
    REDEMPTION, For Colored Boys
    Season 1, Episode 1
    Starring Julito McCullum and Rob Morgan.
    Written and Directed by Stacey Muhammad. Cinematography by J. Anders Urmacher.
    Edited by: Kathryn Hood Moore
    Original Music by Chris Rob
    About the Series: Benjamin Boyd, Sr. returns home after years of incarceration, determined to reunite his family by rekindling the love between he and his wife and re-assuming his role as father to his teenage daughter and 20-year-old son, E. SUBSCRIBE to the Youtube Page>>> http://www.youtube.com/staceymfilms Review: "Redemption, For Colored Boys" mines drama out of the absent-father-returns scenario but gives the characters a genuine life and personality (the son records music passionately, his father has a warm encounter with a bodega clerk) before the histrionics start, so when they do, it feels realistic. Furthermore, the movie uses the short form to its advantage: the director cuts immediately after the altercation between father and son, suggesting that things can't actually be repaired. It's a much more honest, powerful statement than any gift-wrapped reconciliation you'd find elsewhere. - Christopher Bell (Indiewire)
