FRIDAY – LUSH LIFE THEATER (1320 Fillmore Street)
One Drop of Love (doc, 67min) by Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni –
WINNER: BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE – ROXBURY INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
One Drop of Love is the feature film of a multimedia solo performance by Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni.
Produced by Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, this extraordinary one-woman show incorporates filmed images, photographs and animation to tell the story of how the notion of ‘race’ came to be in the United States and how it affects our most intimate relationships. A moving memoir, One Drop takes audiences from the 1700s to the present, to cities all over the U.S. and to West and East Africa, where the narrator and her family spent time in search of their ‘racial’ roots.
The ultimate goal of the show is to encourage everyone to discuss ‘race’ and racism openly and critically.
