BASEMENT TV - Projects in Development

  1. Produced, directed and edited by Azed Majeed

    This film portrays the mythology of Africa in the western mind. What motivates us to want to connect with quote/unquote dark continent? What kind of lost soul finds themselves traveling for twenty hours on a cramped bus to get to one of the most impoverished corners of the planet? What does Allyson find in her devotion to the Burkinese children? What can a young man like Jamaal really discover about himself from a visit to Africa? And finally, what happens when Western fantasies of Africa collide with the reality of the local codes and customs?

  5. A teaser/test reel for a project we are developing based on the words and work of Professor Thomas De Zengotita.

    Influenced by the media-inspired "culture of performance," we now live our lives as if we are performers practicing method acting. We go through the motions of expected reactions to everything from the 9/11 terrorist attacks to Princess Diana's death. The Internet, satellite television, and a host of technological products and services now give us the impression of participating in current and historical events to such an extent that we can barely distinguish the real from unreal.
