Spotlight: Working with the Gossfields

Updated: May 6, 2019

When you think of #BlackQueerHollywood #directors, the list is short. But we had seen #dlchronicles produced and directed by Quincy & Deondray Gossfield (@deondraygosset and @qlenear). Much to our surprise, when we approached them about #CongoCabaret, they jumped on the project. They rocketed @shogafilms into a new realm of professionalism and production values, and our collaborative result created what our assistant director, Chad Kukahiko (@ckukahiko) described as "a barnburner." But their commitment to promoting the #queerharlemrenaissance is both personal and political. Please help them turn #SmokeLiliesandJade into another masterpiece by contributing a much appreciated tax-deductible #donation to our #crowdfund campaign thru @SeedandSpark. Please donate at:
