"Mike Sargent was fantastic as moderator for our multigenerational panel of African American filmmakers, which closed out the Birth of an Answer event. He energized the audience and our panelists and steered them through an honest but also irreverent conversation about the future of Black cinema and the challenges minority filmmakers face in telling stories that defy Hollywood's stereotypes (and getting those films distributed)."
