Speaker Bios:
Marc Levin
A pioneer in the art of merging fiction and non-fiction filmmaking, Marc Levin brings narrative and verite techniques together in his independent films, episodic television and documentaries. His Brick City TV series won the 2010 Peabody award and was nominated for an Emmy for Exceptional Merit in Nonfiction Filmmaking. His dramatic feature film, SLAM, which won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival and the Camera D'Or at Cannes in 1998, received international recognition for its seamless blending of the real world with a narrative flow. Hollywood Reporter wrote, "Brace yourself for a slam-dunk of a movie, in an in-your-face cinema verite-style that makes Godard's Breathless seem like a cartoon."

Mark Benjamin
Since the late 1970s, Mark Benjamin has built his reputation through an allegiance to film and television. As a director, producer and cameraman, Benjamin's credits include numerous independent films, eight Bill Moyers documentaries, six National Geographic films and films for ABC, CBS, NBC, HBO, TBS, and the Discovery Channel. Benjamin received his first filming assignment in 1973, when he shot in the Sinai Desert for NBC's coverage of the October war in the Middle East.

Joseph "Jazz" Hayden
Legendary, veteran Harlem based activist and filmmaker.
