This actually looks like an interesting documentary!

It's amazing how many topics are covered in this trailer that are seen on this board on a daily basis
I'm interested in the conclusion of this documentary and hearing what the producers' purpose in creating this film was

Much has been said, written, and discussed about black women the past few years. From how our education levels affect our marriage prospects to whether or not our hair plays into our fitness routines, black women have been at the center of the media’s attention.

In the midst of this focus, many black women and their allies have pushed back against the negative messages and have begun to craft their own stories. From Issa Rae and her groundbreaking show Awkward Black Girl to Shonda Rhimes and her hit ABC drama Scandal, black women are flipping the script and taking control of our images.

A new documentary, by acclaimed filmmaker http://www.urbanwinter.com/" rel="nofollow - D. Channsin Berry aims to further the conversation about what it means to be a black woman in America.

In his new film, http://blogs.indiewire.com/shadowandact/first-trailer-for-the-black-line-a-profile-of-the-african-american-woman-from-dark-girls-director-producer" rel="nofollow - The Black Line: A Profile of the African-American Woman , Berry interviewed nearly 70 black women from different age groups and regions to get their perspective on everything from sex and health to education and religion.

Berry, one of the forces behind the critically acclaimed documentary Dark Girls said he wanted to make this film because of his love of his people.

“I just happen to be a man who cares about our people in such a way that I can tell a story without my Black manhood getting in the way of listening to African American women as they tell their stories,” Berry http://blogs.indiewire.com/shadowandact/first-trailer-for-the-black-line-a-profile-of-the-african-american-woman-from-dark-girls-director-producer" rel="nofollow - said .

The film, which will debut early next year, will surely make the film festival circuit, so be sure to catch it when it hits your town.

Watching the clip in another tab. Great discussion especially coming from black male's perspective.
