April 2021 Update – It’s a Wrap!

It’s official! We wrapped the film in December at Skywalker Studios and Zoetrope Aubry Productions in the Bay area.  It was an absolutely amazing experience. The music score composed by Derek Nakamoto is phenomenal and Grammy award winning blues artist Keb’Mo’ composed and sang an incredible original end credits song. Our film is running at 59 minutes.

We could not have made this happen without you!

We’re now on to the distribution phase and our first stop will be at the Harlem International Film Festival on opening night May 6th for a 7:50 PM screening at AMC Magic Johnson Harlem 9 Theatres. Due to Covid restrictions there will only be a handful of films screened live on opening night, and 100 Years From Mississippi is one of them. In addition, we’re proud to announce that our film was also nominated for Best Documentary Feature at this year’s festival.

There is a limited capacity of 50 seats maximum in a 285 seat theater. Tickets are $17. If you would like to attend the live screening in New York City please visit the ticket link here: Harlem International Film Festival.

t is our profound hope that everyone is healthy and safe. Please take care of yourselves, your family, friends and neighbors and follow the fundamentals of public health. We need fierce, compassionate and thoughtful actions to open the way for transformation in this moment.
