A Filmmaker (Brian Ellison), A sculptor (Anthony Suber)and Anthropogist (Marlon Hall) Form a Guild of Griots to Travel the nation archiving the stories Black Men Tell of Mask and Lifes Meaning.
From around the corner
we heard a healing
a heard of men dreaming
where every sunrise is a green light for black men to hold hands to know.
-Mr James Poetry
Marlon F. Hall is an international lecturing anthropologist, practitioner, and storyteller who uses film, art-installations, salon dinner parties, and yoga to unearth beauty from brokenness.
He helps individuals and organizations develop sustainable practices, rituals, values, and programs that deepen their connections, strengthen their culture and broaden their impact.
His life intention is to cultivate human potential in ways that are whimsically beautiful and positively willful.
Texas native Anthony Suber is a multimedia artist working and living in the South. As a painter, sculptor and educator, his work focuses on historical references, spirituality and the contemporary African American experience through the lens of personal experiences of religion and social relationships. Utilizing his love for the representation of the passage of time, Suber works primarily with emblematic connections, chronological references, and narrative “stills”. In doing so, Suber seeks to record and present a segment of the human experience that allows the viewer to participate in the compositional construct. Outside of his studio practice, Suber has served over a decade as a visual arts instructor, and mentor.
Brian Ellison is a philanthropist and a self-taught photographer, cinematographer, and conceptual visual artist. He is the director and cinematographer of the film UnMASKulinity. Brian believes there is no limit to self-expression and that art is a universal language that can be the catalyst for healing. Through his lens, Brian documents the everyday Black experience such as gentrification's impact on historical communities, under-publicized Black love and comradery, parenthood, and the persistent courage of Black women and men.
