The MVAA FF2023 premiered two of the biggest projects coming to HULU
Acclaimed filmmakers Stanley Nelson Jr. and Valerie Scoon took to the stage for Sound of the Police, a new documentary on HULU. The film examines the fraught relationship between African Americans and the police, which is often filled with fear, suspicion and hostility from all sides. It's an in-depth examination of the long and complex racial history in the U.S. that set the path for policing in communities of color, fuels ongoing conflicts and makes the necessary demand for reform. The series is produced by ABC News Studios in association with Firelight Films.
Director Mariama Diallo joined journalist Cori Murray for The Other Black Girl screening at Martha's Vineyard African American Film Festival 2023.

While Nella thinks she has made an ally, a series of uncomfortable events leads to Hazel's rise, leaving Nella to figure out what the heck has happened. The Other Black Girl premieres on HULU September 13, 2023.
