The Gist of Freedom Live on location ~ Screening, The Contradictions of Fair Hope, with Producer, Filmmaker & Director: S. Epatha Merkerson at Martha's Vineyard August 10, 2012
The Contradictions of Fair Hope” Narrated by Whoopi Goldberg and featuring the music of jazz musician Christian McBride, chronicles the little-known story of the Fair Hope Benevolent Society in Alabama, one of the nation’s last surviving benevolent societies. They were groups formed after emancipation by newly freed slaves throughout the South to help care for the sick, feed the hungry, and bury the dead.
Merkerson co-produced and co-directed the film with Rockell Metcalf, who came to the story through a conversation with his 99-year-old grandmother, the oldest surviving member of the Fair Hope Benevolent Society. This organization was created by six uneducated men 124 years ago,” said Merkerson in a telephone interview. “The film gives a full picture of how Fair Hope evolved and the complexities involved in its continued existence.”

Mandy Eppley speaks with visual artist Gypsy Hundley about how her creative spirit is reflected in her artwork and is her passionate way of serving in the world.
Gypsy Hundley has been painting full time for over 10 years. Her work has been displayed in galleries throughout the nation and purchased from thousands of spirits world wide. Starting out as an outsider/folk artist, Gypsy spent years traveling the unknown roads touring art shows and seeking galleries while living out of her van. Her tenacity to evolve and pursue an art career gave her strength to move forward. Her continual changes in her style has gained respect, recognition and admiration.
When she speaks of her art, it is as if she's telling a story of an ancient love she has danced through life with, hand in hand. "I wouldn't know what I would do if I couldn't create. I am so very blessed and choose to carry those blessings to others through my colors and imagination. Hopefully to heal and brighten other lives."
Encouragement & Inspiration! Let's Talk About It, Then Pray About It. There Is Hope. Hope is not a sedative; it is a shot of adrenaline, a spiritual blood transfusion." A study of concentration camp survivors found that those prisoners who were able to hold onto their sense of hope ‘things are going to get better’ or ‘we’re going to get out of here one day’ were much more likely to survive. Hope then is not optional but for these prisoners proved to be a matter of life and death. "?But now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love?" 1 Corinthians 13:13 Faith and hope are inseparably linked. We believe and so we hope. Hope is a confidence born of faith. When we have faith in God, we claim His promises, and they give us hope for the future. This blessed hope is an exciting expectancy because God controls the future. When Jesus Christ is your Savior and your Lord, the future is your friend.You don't have to worry. Our society is characterized by a pervading sense of hopelessness. The Church is not immune to this hopeless feeling. Many who claim to be born again believers in Jesus Christ are searching for fulfillment in life. "Being defeated is often only a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent."

Mitchell’s guest this evening is a young man whose story was one of two told in the film Oil & Water, David Poritz, about the devastation of large swaths of the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest, right in the middle of Indian tribal lands inhabited by the indigenous people for generations. The film was featured on Progressive Film Hour on March 3, on which Mitchell interviewed one of the filmmakers, Francine Strickwerda and the other young man whose story was told in the film, Hugo Lucitante.
Both controversial and with impassioned, environmentalist emotions set aside, today’s guest, David Poritz, is creating a novel and really desperately needed protection of indigenously-populated lands through the ranking/rating system of safety and what need to be eco-sensitive practices by the oil industry, just as we have fair-trade certification for coffee, diamonds and other commodities often originating in the highly-exploited “Global South”.
Oil and Water will be the featured film for the matinee showing at the Paradigm Shifts Music and Film Festival on Sunday, March 29 at 3pm. For more information and tickets, go to: http://abetterworld.tv/a-music-and-film-festival-march-19-29/
