BAMcinématek presents “Creatively Speaking” September 17th and 18th. Celebrating its fifth year at BAMcinématek, Creatively Speaking™ offers films that speak to the wide-ranging experiences of people of color across the Diaspora. In celebration of the United Nations declaring 2011 as The Year of People of African Descent, this year’s Creatively Speaking film series at BAMcinématek brings together a hand-picked selection of high quality, entertaining and informative films and videos representing the breadth and depth of the diversity of people of African descent from around the world.

Curator, Michelle Materre, states, “This year, we present three feature films that have yet to receive widespread theatrical exposure. Children of God is a debut feature narrative by Kareem Mortimer, set against the backdrop of the beautiful island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas –a nation grappling with a surge in violent homophobic crimes. Fire in Babylon, by award-winning UK director Stevan Riley, tells the story of the glorious domination of the West Indian cricket team which became one of the greatest teams in sports history, while also celebrating the emancipation of a people with its roots in politics, pride, anti-colonial fury and music.
