On Friday, Nov. 4, 2011, I was unable to broadcast these two interviews, with Banker White, director or WeOwnTV, debuting at Cinema by the Bay, 2 PM, Saturday, Nov. 5, 2011 or the interview with Naima and Fanta, who speak about the fundraiser, HAITI RISING, A benefit for Ayiti Resurrect, Sunday November 6, 2011, 4-9:00 p.m. @ The NeXus @ United Earth Networks, 1414 Harbour Way South, Suite #1010, Marina Bay, Richmond, CA 94804. WeOwnTV: Freetown in the Bay, Dir. Banker White, Black Nature, Saturday, November 5, 2:00 pm, SF Film Society | New People Cinema on Post Street in SF.  When San Francisco-based filmmaker Banker White made Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars (2005), a documentary about six musicians who form a band while living in a refugee camp in Guinea, he made the extraordinary decision to try to help others in Freetown by developing a collaborative media project with other Sierra Leoneans. This program will present a series of the considerable array of styles, such as newscasts, art films and traditional tales now being produced by WeOwnTV in Sierra Leone. On Fete Gede, the night of Festival of the Ancestors (Haitian Day of the Dead), we will gather to honor those who passed in the earthquake and all celebrate the resilience, survival and self-determination of our Haitian family. An inspiring array of artists from coast to coast with bloodlines in the Haitian Diaspora across the globe are coming together to being a powerful offering to Spirit, and to support the collaborative healing work Ayiti Ressurect is engaged in Leogane, Comier, Haiti. Get over any hesitation about going to Richmond on Sunday night, to this post-industrial temple filled with magical sculptures and creative sanctuary. We will be drunk on the synergy of poetry choreographed to movement, medicine distilled from song, music carved from the hollow spaces transformation creates in our lives.
