You may have noticed I’ve posted a little less over the last week or two.
Part of the reason is because the upcoming Negros Americanos documentary, Lost in the Wilderness (see Plainfield View’s video preview here), has evolved into something a lot bigger than its scope only a month ago. It’s a Panamanian story of adventure. It’s a Latino, and Afro-Latino, story. It’s a story of struggle, and music. It’s a story of race. It’s a story about Plainfield.
This weekend, for Lost in the Wilderness, MC Enigma, Bishop the Eastside Nappyhead, and I conducted two local interviews – one with Steven Hatcher of the People’s Organization for Progress and another with Carmen Salavarrieta of Angels for Action.
Readers might be interested to know that we also talked at length with Angels for Action about their recently restarted identification card program. Much of the video content will be released later in the week after it is edited, and it will be accompanied by a new piece that sheds light on Angels’ for Action’s efforts. Bishop’s Travels will cover the issue as well.
As for the documentary, here are a few photos, as well as screenshots from videos, at some of our filming locations.
