Doc Watchers Presents: "Battle for the Mind", "No Ward" & "Coming Home"
Battle for the Hearts and Minds
(Dir. Shani Peters, 2009, 10 mins.)
A video installation depicting a battle of words between historical black legends W.E.B. DuBois and Marcus Garvey. Relating elements of their documented 1920's era conflict to later century hip-hop and hip-hop beef, the ongoing 'fight' for social justice, and black disunity in general, the 'event' is presented as a cross between a title fight and a rap battle.

No Ward
(Dir. Terence Nance, 2009, 10 mins.)
No Ward is a short documentary about the forced migration of New Orleans residents to cities in Texas. The film juxtaposes the migrations that occurred as a result of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and Hurricane Gustave in 2008.

Coming Home
(Dir. Michele Stephenson, 2009, 39 mins.)
In collaboration with the National Economic and Social Rights Initiative, The Rada Film Group is co-producing Coming Home, a documentary that tells the story of Sam Jackson, a 52 year old resident of housing projects in the 9th Ward of New Orleans and a survivor of Hurricane Katrina. The film explores how, after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, this somewhat reclusive quiet man becomes a passionate advocate for his community, reaching out to people in his neighborhood, as well as around the nation and the world to support the struggle for the right of his community to move back to their rightful homes.
