Entertaining Artistic Films That Embrace Humanity
New Releases - Coming Soon!
Dante James and DMD Films, LLC has plans to make another film based on the work of Charles W. Chesnutt. He is currently seeking financing for a film based on Charles Chesnutt’s novel “The Marrow of Tradition.” Published in 1901 the novel is a fictional retelling of the rise of the white supremacist movement, specifically as it aided the fomentation of what was originally referred to as the “race riots” that took place in Wilmington, North Carolina, in 1898. Some critics and historians argue over what would be a more proper term to define the incident. Some favor the blunt and descriptive “massacre” while others prefer coup d'etat, in reference to the fact that the local black government was successfully overthrown by force.
DMD Films, LLC is also developing a feature documentary on the Black Panther Party with David Hilliard founding member and leader of the Party and current executive director of the Huey P. Newton Foundation in Oakland, CA.
