Chancellor Willy Brandt
"The future will not be mastered by those who dwell on the past."

Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
"Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals."

President John F. Kennedy
"We must never forget that art is not a form of propaganda; it is a form of truth."

President Barack Hussein Obama
"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek."

in cooperation with
Commissioner for Integration, District Tempelhof-Schöneberg, Berlin

From May 7-10, 2009 Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre under the direction of Prof. Donald Muldrow Griffith and Prof. Gayle McKinney Griffith, present the interdisciplinary and intercultural film/video festival Black International Cinema Berlin for the 24th year. For the first time, the festival will guest at the Rathaus Schöneberg (city hall) and be presented in cooperation with the Commissioner for Integration of the district Tempelhof-Schöneberg, Berlin, Gabriele Gün Tank.

Under the theme "A COMPLEXION CHANGE - International & Intercultural Diplomacy”, films from Africa, the African Diaspora and films with an intercultural perspective are the focus.
Approximately 60 productions will be screened, among them cinematic works from Cape Verde, Benin, France, USA, Iran, India, Togo, Senegal, Belgium, Germany, United Kingdom, Colombia, Spain, Nicaragua, Switzerland and Madagascar. In addition, film discussions, performances and seminars will be conducted.

German Commission for UNESCO, Bonn
Our festival is supported as an ideal project by the German Commission for UNESCO, Bonn. As a result we received the following letter of acknowledgement from Christine M. Merkel, Head of the Division for Culture and Memory of the World.
"A COMPLEXION CHANGE 2009-2011 is an International Media Project with a very contemporary and innovative approach. It aims at contributing to the strengthening of international understanding, peace and friendship among peoples. It promotes intercultural dialogue in the spirit of the ideals and aims of UNESCO.
The German Commission for UNESCO appreciates this initiative. We kindly ask you to assist Prof. Donald Muldrow Griffith and the Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre / Black International Cinema Berlin / The Collegium – Forum & Television Program Berlin & Cultural Zephyr e.V. as well as all other co-organizers and project participants in realizing this project. We are convinced that this idea can offer inspiring experience to many people in the region."

Railbookers
"Since it was founded in 1986, the Black International Cinema festival in Berlin has developed into one of the most highly regarded film events in Europe and movie fans will have the chance to experience it for themselves between May 7th and 10th.
Produced and directed by the Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre, the extravaganza is an interdisciplinary and intercultural celebration of the contribution made by black actors and directors in the world of film.
The focus of the festival is to present works of a cultural, artistic and political nature coinciding with the general social, economic and educational interests of people from Africa.
Open to all filmmakers and visitors, the event provides a platform for the impact of cinema from the African Diaspora and people with an interest in intercultural relations.
The Fountainhead® organization is committed to fighting religious, ethnic and gender persecution and seeks to battle discrimination through dialogue and understanding.
By using art, theatre, dance, music and seminars, the foundation believes that prejudice against disadvantaged groups can be challenged and stronger links within society can be forged.
Visitors will be treated to powerful and thought-provoking examples of cinema from the past and present."

PART LXVI
Grownupism!
1Day, When I Grow Up!

So, as usual, I wuz sittin' an' stinkin' 'bout wut I'm gonna be one day when I grow up?
I mean, these are pretty tough decisions for a fella to make?
I gotta listen to all kinda folks from the dragon-teecher at the dungeon skool to my perents an' pardnurs an' even my sister - sumtimes!
I'm only a kid an' up to now, I'm constantly gettin' all kindsa do this an' do that stuff!
The way I figure it, it's only gonna git worse, with more stuff to listen to an' more decisions to make?
Wow, I wish I culd jes finda clear line, with all the answers I need to the questions I have, an' that in the future, I'm probably gonna have?
For instance, I wuz shakin' hands with a friend of my father, an' this guy wuz squeezin' the blood outta my fingers an' didn't wanna let go!
Then he sez, "Young man, a firm strong handshake is the mark of someone with character, so you should work on that handshake of yours!"
Then he laughed an' sed "I've got some strength training equipment and if you use it for just six months, you'll have an iron grip handshake and people will feel your character in that new hand grip of yours."
So after, I got the blood runnin' in my hand again, I started thinkin', wut in the wurl does squeezin' sumbodies hand got to do with havin' character?
So first I thought I'd better look up character in the dictionary, 'cause maybe I didn't know wut this strange language word really meant?
The book sed, "The total quality of a person's behavior, as revealed in his habits of thought and expression, his attitudes and interests, actions and personal philosophy of life!"
Far out, how in the wurl kin a hand squeezin' tuga war, wrestlin' hand shake tell alla that character stuff in a few seconds?
Personally, I think this hand squeezin' stuff is jes another struggle 'tween folks to see who is on top an' who is down under!
I figure like granma tol' me, if I grow up an' behave myself like I've been taught, then this will be plenty of proof that I'm a good character person an' forget about the hand squeezin' stuff!
It's jes a game named character, I'm not gonna play!
So after all I'm findin' an' makin' my way to growin' up an' jes like granma sed,
"You're on the right track!"
Thank you granma.
All this thinkin' an' stuff is wearing me out,
So I'm gonna say
G'nite
I love you
G'nite!

PART LXVI
Erwachsensein!
Eines Tages, wenn ich erwachsen werde!

Also, wie üblich war ich am Sitz'n und Stink'n darüba, was ich ma' werde, wenn ich groß bin?
Ich mein, das sind echt krasse Entscheidungen, die man als Junge mach'n muss?
Ich soll auf alle möglichen Leute hör'n, von der Drachenlehrerin inner Kerkerschule bis zu mein' Eltern und Kumpels und sogar meine Schwester - manchma'!
Ich bin nur ein Kind und bis jetzt bekomm ich ständig allen möglichen Tu-dies-und-tu-das-Kram zu hör'n!
So wie ich mir das vorstell, wird das alles nur noch schlimmer, mit noch mehr Zeugs zum Anhör'n und noch mehr Entscheidungen treff'n?
Wow, ich wünschte, ich könnt einfach 'ne klare Linie find'n, mit den ganzen Antworten, die ich für alle meine Fragen brauch, die ich hab und die ich in der Zukunft wahrscheinlich haben werd?
Zum Beispiel hab ich einem Freund meines Vaters die Hand gegeb'n und der Typ quetschte mir das Blut aus den Fingern und ließ nich' mehr los!
Dann sagte er: "Junger Mann, ein fester Händedruck ist das Zeichen für jemanden mit Charakter, also solltest du an deinem Händedruck arbeiten!"
Dann lachte er und sagte: "Ich habe einiges an starker Trainingsausrüstung und wenn du die nur sechs Monate benutzt, hast du einen eisenharten Händedruck und die Leute werden deinen Charakter in deinem neuen Händedruck fühlen."
So, als das Blut in mein' Händen wieder floss, begann ich zu denken, was in der Welt hat das Quetschen von jemandes Hand damit zu tun, dass man Charakter hat?
Also dacht ich erst, ich schau ma' besser im Wörterbuch nach "Charakter", weil ich vielleicht nicht wusste, was dieses Wort aus einer fremden Sprache wirklich bedeutet?
Das Buch sagte: "Die ganze Qualität des Verhaltens eines Menschen, wie sie sich in seinen Gewohnheiten zu denken und sich auszudrücken, seiner Einstellung und seinen Interessen, seinem Handeln und persönlicher Lebensphilosophie äußert!"
Echt krass, wie in der Welt kann ein Händedruck wie beim Tauzieh'n und Ring'n diesen ganzen Charakterkram in 'n paar Sekunden sag'n?
Pasönlich glaub ich, dass dieses Händedruckzeugs einfach nur 'n and'rer Kampf zwischen Leuten is' über wer is' oben und wer is' unten drunter!
Ich vamute, wie Oma mir gesagt hat, dass, wenn ich erwachsen werd und mich benehm, wie man mir gesagt hat, dann is' das mehr als genug Beweis dafür, dass ich 'ne Person mit gutem Charakter bin, und ich vagess dieses Händedruckzeugs!
Das is nur 'n Spiel mit Namen Charakter, das ich nich spiel'n werd!
Also, davon abgeseh'n, find ich und mach mein' Weg und werd erwachsen und wie Oma sagt: "Du bist auf dem richtigen Weg!"
Danke, Oma.
Und dieses Denk'n und der Kram erschöpft mich.
Also sag ich ma'
'Nacht
Hab euch lieb
'Nacht
