Yes, you heard right! "Mr. Gele" has been accepted into the African World Film Festival that is taking place in Detroit, Michigan. The festival takes place from August 17th - 19th and will feature several films and festivities including poetry, arts and craft , African drumming and a host of other events for the family all packed in just 2 days! Our film will be screened at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American HIstory Theater on Sunday, August 19th at 2pm.
It is indeed a great honor to be in this festival because part of the documentary was filmed in Dearborn, Michigan in September 2016. Talk about a full circle moment!
