This is the second episode in the Friendspiration Series! Pretty thrilled that the turnaround on this one a week from when we recorded.

I'm thrilled to have Bentley Brown as a guest today. I first met him a few months ago, actually a few nights before I ran the Boston Marathon, when he was in town for a film screening of his latest: "Revolution from Afar." It's currently running on PBS. In this episode, we chat about spending the formidable years of his childhood in Chad, how filmmaking is a way to express his identity, and the many lessons he's learned as a filmmaker. Feel free to reach out to him if you're interested in booking a screening!

Revolution from Afar

"In 2019, after protests across Sudan resulted in the fall of 30-year dictator Omar al-Bashir, the military took control, shutting down the Internet and leaving those outside abroad to voice a plea for peaceful transition to civilian government. An ocean away, Sudanese-American poets, rappers and musicians, whose families left Sudan for America in decades past, gather in Brooklyn and Denver to perform in support of the revolution. At the heart of the film is a conversation around identity, belonging and the uncertain future of Sudan."
