6 Things I Never Told You" August 27th @ BAM 6:50pm & 9:30pm


Justice League, Justice League America, Justice League International, Justice League Task Force, Justice League Elite, Extreme Justice...

If any of those names ring a bell, you know that these were the names used for a rotating roster of superheroes featured in comic books and animated television series from 1960-1986 (Super Friends).

Now, there is a new group of "Super Heroes" on the scene. This new group is called 6 Leagues their mission, to save the world one film at a time.

In the Summer of 2005, six award-winning Alumni the Graduate Film
Program at NYU came together and formed the collective, 6 Leagues, a New York
based, underground film collective.

Committed to the notion of collaboration and exploration, they created: "6
Things I Never Told You", a feature film anthology of cinematic snapshots
examining committed romantic relationships in flux. Each segment stakes out
a significant landmark in the time line of relationships renewed, dominated,
lost and longing for one thing: Control.

Breaking from standard relationship film fare, 6 Things … examines black sex and sexuality without showing the act of sex. “Showing sexuality without showing sex allowed us, and the filmgoers, to explore the relationships on a different level,” says Thing Two-The Cable Box director Cinque Northern. “Black love and sex on the silver screen tends to not be nuanced,” explains Northern, “with 6 Things…, we show this love in different forms.”

6 Things I Never Told You (2008) 93min
Directed by 6 Leagues' Stacey L. Holman, Cinque Northern, Ed DuRante, Rod Gailes OBC,
Caran Hartsfield and James Richards
The film segments star Jamie Hector (HBO's The Wire), Novella Nelson (Antwone Fisher), Hassan Manning, Cherise Booth, Dominique Morriseau, Leopold Lowe, and Lela Aisha Jones.

Come on, how often do you get to witness the work of super heroes?? Get yourselves to BAM this Thursday!
