One thing stood out at Urbanworld Film Fest…

Michael Wanguhu, Umi & Russell Kenya

We were honored to be part of the Urbanworld Film Festival 2010. A big thank you to the founder of the UWFF, Mr.Stacy Spikes; he’s been the visionary behind the Festival and has kept it going and thriving for the last 14 years. Ni Wakati (It’s Time) selection in the documentary category was an honor in defining its role as a multicultural film. The awards Gala was hosted by former host of BET 106 Park ‘Free’ and Vibe’s editorial director Datwon Thomas. The festival presented us with an opportunity to screen in New York to a diverse audience. It was a delight to interact with the engaging audience after each screening.

One thing stood out, this is a story that everyone needs to hear. Ni Wakati (It’s Time) is a feature that offers a diverse perspective of Africa than what is normally portrayed. It especially highlights our similarities by focusing on the bridges that unite us (family) verses the rivers that divide us.

Thanks to all of you that came to support the our film. Don’t miss out on our next screening at the Twin Cities’ Black Film Festival and Oakland International Film Festival…stay tuned!
