WITH A MEANING
A unique, behind the scenes look at the Los Angeles' Lula Washington Dance Theatre (LWDT) - the leading African American dance company west of the Mississippi - and their staging of a ballet piece based on the Paul Laurence Dunbar poem "We Wear the Mask," a stinging indictment of the Stepin Fetchit roles African Americans were forced to play in order to "get by." Known worldwide through their international performances, everything Lula Washington and her company stands for comes together in their production of "We Wore the Mask."
A multi-layered masterpiece; a unique fusion of documentary, animation and story. Interviews are interwoven with multicultural artwork and a Hi-Def stop-motion adaptation of an ancient tale where a noble king is charged with the grim task of delivering a corpse to a mysterious sorcerer (Puppets created by Brian & Wendy Froud). Showing how mythology and story can change the world, award-winning filmmakers Steven & Whitney Boe engage the audience with a thought-provoking, unpretentious, and often humorous style that captures the essence of what it is to be human and asks the question: Will you know who you are when you die or will death have to tell you?
