    We're curious to see how the dynamic duo of Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort follow-up their two movie extravaganza from last year. We didn't love Divergent, but we didn't hate it either. Can this one up the game and make the sequel worth your time?

    INDIE REVIEW RADIO/ CYBEL MARTIN / INDIE FILM

    in Entertainment

    Cybel is the first and only African American woman to receive an MFA in Cinematography from NYU. Perhaps because she was named after 1962 Oscar winning film, “Sundays and Cybele”, this native New Yorker has set her sights on her own golden statue.

Her feature work has included “Flora’s Garment Bursting into Bloom”, winner of the Showtime “No Limits” Award at the New Festival, addtl photography for the Slamdance Grand Jury Winner “On The Outs,” the criminal dramas “Dregs of Society” and “No Problem.” She has also been fortunate to team up with notable performance artists, most recently shooting “Forget Me Not” for artist Zach Fabri, commissioned by the Studio Museum of Harlem. She received considerable recognition for her work on “The Gilded Six Bits”. This 1920′s period piece set in the rural south and based on a Zora Neale Hurston story, won the Hollywood Black Film Festival Jury Award and special screenings at The Library of Congress, The Smithsonian and Museum of Natural History. The film featured Wendell Pierce (“The Wire”, “Treme”) and Chad Coleman (“The Walking Dead”).  Cybel has contributed to numerous documentaries, notably Lucy Walker’s “The Crash Reel”, “Inside: The New Black Panther Party” for National Geographic, ”11 Days” dir by Dan Metcalf and prod by Mark Burnett and the Tribeca Film Festival “All Access Award” winner, “Dressed Like Kings”.
