My Morocco Memories: Stanley Nelson Blogs About Screening Freedom Riders in Morocco

From September 24th to October 1st, Stanley Nelson, director of FREEDOM RIDERS, and Cherien Dabis, director of AMREEKA, traveled to Morocco as part of Film Forward to present their films and conduct filmmaking workshops. Film Forward organized this whirlwind tour to the Kingdom of Morocco where participants exhibited films, engaged audience members and exchanged information with local filmmakers and film Industry leaders. Nelson described his trip as "incredible" and wrote a blog about his experience. One attendee asked him whether blacks in the United States still needed to protest now that Barack Obama is president and whether we still need people like the Freedom Riders. Check out Nelson's response to this question and his blog by going to: http://www.sundance.org/filmforward/blog-entry/my-morocco-memories/.
