Independent filmmakers are empowered with a voice and a platform to not only engage and entertain audiences but also to share stories and experiences that need to be heard. Vision Films (“Vision”) is proud to bring a diverse slate of films from unique and talented producers to the Cannes 2020 Virtual Market. The Black Emperor of Broadway, Bilal: A New Breed of Hero, The Color of Medicine: The Story of Homer G. Phillips Hospital, and Hidden Orchard Mysteries: The Case of the Air B & B Robbery are just a handful of films represented by Vision Films that are available for online screening.
The first African-American actor in a lead role takes center stage on Broadway in The Black Emperor of Broadway, a young boy is stolen far from his home and finds courage to make a change in Bilal: A New Breed of Hero, Black excellence in the medical community is highlighted in The Color of Medicine: The Story of Homer G. Phillips Hospital, and two female junior detectives solve a neighborhood crime in Hidden Orchard Mysteries: The Case of the Air B & B Robbery.
“Vision Films is pleased to present a lineup of exceptional, timely, and poignant films to international audiences,” says Lise Romanoff, Managing Director/CEO of Vision Films. “It is such an inspiring time to see the entire world come together on a movement, and sharing films that reflect values such as diversity and inclusion has never been more important.”
