Gotta blow it up w/some brotherly love to the Sistuhs at Loki Films --Directors Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing and their film's editor, Enat Sidi, for winning Best Editing of a Documentary for the film 'Detropia'! It was also named one of the Top Five Documentaries last year by the National Board of Review!
Crazy props to 'em!!! Some of the best in the game!!!
What's crazy is that these sistuhs were up in this factory a year ago shooting the Taharka Brothers' film 'A Dream Preferred' (word to Langston Hughes homeboys & homegirls!)!
Say what?! No, say word!
Detroit aka Motown, home of the funk stands tall and will never fall! It's got way too much soul for that!!! Funk brothers, Berry Gordy, Smokey, Temps, Tops, George Clinton & P-Funk, Aretha, Supremes!!!!
