A Lot Like You

A Film by Eliaichi Kimaro

A Lot Like You inspires CPB partnership!

October 1, 2012

We are so very excited to share that the hour long version of A LOT LIKE YOU, which we cut this summer, will have its broadcast premiere on January 22, 2013 on the PBS series, AfroPoP:  the ultimate cultural exchange.

From CPB’s website:

Public Broadcasting has a fundamental commitment to develop and fund quality, culturally-diverse programming for the American viewing public. CPB currently fulfills this commitment by funding the Minority Consortia which in turn select and fund programs about their communities, including African Americans, Native Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders.

The Consortia function as developers, producers, and distributors of radio and television programming that appeals to diverse audiences and harnesses the creative talents of minority communities. These organizations also award grants to producers for program production, training, exhibition, and outreach activities.

And we’re particularly excited that two consortia of color (National Black Programming Consortium and Center for Asian American Media) will be teaming up to co-present our film, A Lot Like You.

I am so proud that this film has inspired this partnership opportunity, and find it so fitting that as our story moves out into the world, it is finding a resonance with people that transcends cultures and worlds.  The truth has no borders…

So way to go, Mom and Dad!  Your loving union is inspiring a world of possibilities 🙂

Well Mr. HeavenScent, I couldn’t have described it better myself…PBS’s labyrinthine ways were dizzying to navigate at times, but I’m so happy with the result. This might be one case where the ends justify the means…
