The Screening at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley (UUCB) was an immense success.  It has gained us a new audience, the seeds of financial redemption and a vision for the future.  Here are excerpts from a note sent us immediately after the screening by a new friend named Lonnie Mosely, a member of the church’s Social Justice Council:

“... what a powerful film!  ....
“But more than a wonderful experience and memories, Christina and I have already been contacted by UUCB members who are committing to further the showing and donations for the film.
“We will
be following up with them and also talking to the Social Justice Council about donations for the film. 
“There’s lots more to do and you’ll continue to hear from us.”

And here's an excerpt from an email received from audience member Stacy Malkan the day after the screening:

"Thank you .... I attended the film with my son who is 9. It was his first documentary! We loved it. I am so moved and touched by the film. 

Thank you ... for bringing us this beautiful, powerful, thought-provoking piece of art.

With love ...."

And another email received - from a former KRON 4 News (San Francisco) anchor Pam Moore:


"... we saw the documentary today - it was excellent.. you all did a wonderful job telling the story of a maddening subject.. we were so angry .. especially that once again she doesn't have a key to the cemetery! Great work."



And yet another message received after the screening this time from a former KPIX News (San Francisco) anchor/reporter Barbara Rodgers: 


"I ... want you and the other organizers to know how much I and my two friends were impressed by Resurrecting Love. It is a deeply moving story that was well-told and it just points out how racism affects every aspect of Black people’s lives—even after they have been dead for more than a century! The documentary is both uplifting and heartbreaking at the same time. It makes very clear how hard it still is to make permanent changes for the better for those who have been discriminated against for decades. I hope that many people throughout the USA and beyond will be able to view the documentary. Perhaps it will help those who do not support diversity and inclusion efforts to see—and understand—just how much those kinds of efforts are needed."  

We're putting together a video of other audience members' responses to the film, but for now you should know that they were all pretty energizing.

Not unlike the responses from the screening of our unfinished version of the film in Teaneck, New Jersey.




















Help us get the word out:


You've heard much from us about our struggle to complete the movie.  WE ARE NOW FINISHED WITH THE PICTURE AND THE SOUND which made possible the screening on January 14th.   We do have work that remains for us to do if we are to be able to gain distribution and screenings in classrooms.  We need to pay our bills for clearing all the rights, forming our legal entity, getting to Festival Screenings and promoting ourselves to the world.  Now would be a good time for you to help if you are inclined.  Click the yellow button below to help us get there.














The button above takes you to a site that enables you to make a tax deductible donation through our fiscal sponsor Fractured Atlas, or to send a check and get the same deduction.


In solidarity,
