Editorial Reviews

Discover the New Black Cinema!

Urban S.L.A.M. is an original ground-breaking series that introduces you to the exciting work of a new generation of urban filmmakers. Presented as a collection of short live action movies (S.L.A.M.'s) with compelling segments in between films, volume 1 features 8 well-crafted mini-movies produced outside of the Hollywood system. These S.L.A.M.'s include Tyson Beckford's acting debut (Gully), festival favorites that have premiered on HBO (The Date) and Showtime (Stone Mansion) and the first 2 episodes of The G-Spot Chronicles.

During breaks in between films, you are taken to the streets of New York City to get people's thoughts on what independent black cinema really means and behind the scenes for an intimate look into the filmmaking process.

Bonus features include a "making of"; documentary, coverage of a premiere screening, alternate endings, a photo slide show, cast interviews and coming attractions.

Smart, sexy, funny and insightful, this rare DVD offers a refreshing take on the black experience and will engage you from start to finish!

Films featured in volume 1 were official selections at festivals such as Urbanworld, Palm Springs International, H20 Hip-Hop Film Festival, New York Latino International Film Festival, Annapolis Film Festival, Pan-African Film Festival and the San Francisco Black Film Festival.
