DMD is seeking financing for a documentary featuring the photography of Lindeka Qampi, a resident of Khayelitsha Township in Cape Town, South Africa. Qampi's photographs explore the humanity, dignity, and artistry of life in Khayelitsha in the midst of poverty, oppression and exploitation. James met Qampi in 2010; they recognized their shared commitment, as artists, to explore the resilience and humanity of Black people throughout the African Diaspora.
DMD Films, LLC and Rev. Carl W. Kenney are developing an independent feature documentary "God of the Oppressed." Through the stories of Bishop Henry McNeil Turner, Howard Thurman, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Rev. Traci Blackmon and others the film will explore the history and relevance of Black Liberation and Womanist Theology. These stories, and characters place in context the scholarship of James Cone, who exhorted in his books Black Liberation and Black Power and God of the Oppressed, "Any message that is not related to the liberation of the poor in a society is not a Christ's message. Any theology that is indifferent to the theme of liberation is not a Christian theology."
DMD is collaborating with Interface Media Group of Washington DC on a digital platform series of dramatic short films based on stories by African American writers.
