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.
Dante James is currently directing, "The Power to Heal," a documentary telling the story of how LBJ used federal Medicare dollars to destroy the Jim Crow medical system. Chased by the Klan and followed by state police, federal officials and civil rights activists raced to ensure the integration of thousands of hospitals so the implementation of Medicare could go forward in 1966.
