Princess Nokia - DESTINY (Documentary)

Princess Nokia is unafraid. During the 16-minute film directed by Orian Barki and produced by The FADER, the self-proclaimed New York aficionado commands the sidewalks of the Lower East Side and East Harlem. There's footage of intimate recording sessions, shots of some of her most beloved local spots, and vulnerable stoop conversations that all show the city's important connection to her work. In the doc, Nokia shares the story of her life before she became an MC and it's clear that her honest rap persona is an extension of her truest self. Nokia doesn't shy away from talking about the hard times in her life and she reflects on her story with a certain tenderness, very much aware of what she survived. In one of the final scenes of the film, Nokia stands before an excited crowd at her 1992 project release concert and looks towards her future and her past: "I had a lot of fun fucking making that record I’ll be honest with you, because I got to rap again. A lot of people used to ask me 'Why don’t you rap? Or why didn’t you continue rapping?' And I wasn't ready." After a short pause she continued, "I’m ready now." http://www.thefader.com/2016/11/29/princess-nokia-documentary-destiny-orian-barki Subscribe now for more The FADER  http://bit.ly/XPZVfG Read the FADER: http://www.thefader.com Follow the FADER on Twitter: https://twitter.com/thefader Like the FADER on Facebook: http://on.fb.me/11JaNSJ Follow the FADER on Tumblr: http://bit.ly/xerObW Cast: Destiny Frasqueri, Anastasia Rojas, John Ortiz, Deborah Frasqueri, Rafealina Sanchez, Samuel Burgess, Patrick “Wiki” Morales Director and Editor: Orian Barki Producers: Robert Semmer, Naomi Zeichner, Joseph Patel Executive Producers: Andy Cohn, Rob Stone, Jon Cohen, Anthony Holland Production Coordinator: Madison LaClair Cinematography: Orian Barki Additional Cinematography: Asia Gorbacheva, Mayan Toledano, Sam Balaban Color: Stephen Picano Sound Mix: Eugene Wasserman Graphics: Dan G.

Hoops Abuelas | In Good Company | Nike

Founded in 1953 in Orizaba, Mexico, team Carta Blanca’s players have been defying stereotypes about women and sports for as long as they can remember. For almost seven decades, these women have slipped on their canary yellow jerseys and cast giant shadows on the basketball court. They’re revolutionaries in their community, an extended family of strong women who laugh, cry, and play sport together every day. For these amazing women, family is the teammate who reaches out a hand when legs give out on the court or who delivers a competitive shove in the paint because they know—even at 70-plus—they can handle it. Director: Orian Barki Thank you to the amazing women of team Carta Blanca.

Rico Nasty - Countin' Up (Documentary)

In the new FADER doc, Countin' Up, Rico Nasty opens up about her personal life behind the music and rock star persona she exudes in the public eye. She painfully remembers the close relationship she had with her son's father before he passed due to an asthma attack and the ensuing trauma, which included attempted suicide on two occasions. As a result, she's become one of music's most selfish selfless artists: projecting the self-confidence young women flock to and reminding people that she's got to take care of her own because she knows no one else will.

Jordan Casteel Paints Her Community | Art21 "New York Close Up"

Where does a painter find her subject matter? With a process that takes her from the streets of Harlem to her studio in DUMBO, Brooklyn, artist Jordan Casteel paints vibrant large scale portraits, making visible the often unrepresented humanity of Black men. At first struggling to find subject matter that could speak to the political realities of police violence and implicit bias, Casteel drew inspiration from her twin brother. "People follow me like I’m a threat," the artist remembers her brother saying, "but they don’t know anything about me." Together Casteel's paintings illustrate the multiplicity of Black male experience; she began with nudes in domestic interiors before expanding to men on the sidewalk, the color and compositions celebrating the visual texture of her Harlem neighborhood. Casteel's work is probing in its tender depiction of Black men who, although often strangers to the artist, gaze directly and intimately out at the viewer. The film follows Casteel as she travels from a brunch at her aunt's Harlem home to a studio visit with university students, to an informal hangout with friends and finally back to the streets of Harlem, mirroring the artist’s own navigation of New York's diverse racial and cultural spaces. Recognizing her complex position as a Black woman painting the bodies of Black men, Casteel nevertheless feels present in the work. "I get really conscious [of the fact that] his story is not mine to tell," says the artist of her brother. "[I've] seen him as this really funny, sensitive, charismatic, loving young man...And as a result, this work really comes from my desire to share what I have known with the world." Featuring footage from the Studio Museum in Harlem’s exhibition "Regarding the Figure," and the Sharpe-Walentas studio residency in DUMBO. Jordan Casteel (b. in 1989, Denver, Colorado) lives and works in New York.
