    Help Fund 'One Day I Too Go Fly' (4-Year Chronicle Of 5 African Engineering Students At MIT)
    News

    ONE DAY I TOO GO FLY is a feature-length documentary following 5 African students who’ve come to the United States to begin studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. These students hail from Rwanda, Nigeria, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Our documentary will follow them through their entire undergraduate careers.

    As the world’s premier technological university, MIT’s mission, ‘to advance knowledge and educate students in science, technology, and other areas of scholarship that will best serve the nation and the world in the 21st century,’ fits developing countries' need for technological expertise. For the students hailing from developing countries, MIT’s save-the-world culture seems like a match made in heaven. But, after years of transformation made to thrive in a new culture, will the students stay true to their original passions to fill labor gaps back home? On the journey to reconcile their thirst for knowledge with their love for their countries, these students will face the same challenges as their American counterparts: being away from home for the first time, making friends, falling in love, and discovering who they are.

    Director/Producer, Arthur Musah, is no stranger to the world of MIT. Hailing from Ghana, Musah completed his undergraduate and graduate degrees at MIT, and went on to work for Texas Instruments. After a while spent in the technological industry, he decided to attend the University of Southern California’s Graduate Film Production Program. He’s now based in Boston, Massachusetts where he continues to film ONE DAY I TOO GO FLY. For the purposes of this film, MIT has granted him status as a Research Fellow.

It wasn't Love and Rockets, to cite an important book by minority creators, and it was superhero-centric, so it must have been compromised in some way. I think we'd all kill for a quality universe like Milestone's these days.
    I dont remember it being so much the indie communty as much as it was folks from Milestone's alleged direct competitor, Ania.

    I say "alleged competitor" because geez, those books were awful. Amateur hour in every sense of the word.
    and this was at a time when indy comics were or had been doing superhero stuff like Elementals, Justice Machine, Liberty Project, Southern Knights, Nexus, Badger and Whisper. Not to mention the Images, Valients and so forth.

    Those guys needed to hone their craft before even thinking about putting out a whole line of product.

    Going the Wrestling keyfabe/Rap beef route might have been a useful tactic in distracting guys from noticing that Ania's product was so bad.

    It looked like fun film to watch and Bay is really only good at making 80s looking shows,films. It looked very much like it was set in 80s like Miami Vice.

    Plus not even Bay can ruin fav action star like The Rock.

    Wallberg is good these days too except in Max Payne.
    Pull List:
    The Walking Dead,Fatale,Near Death,Storm Dogs,Happy,BPRD,XO-Manowar

    Be careful. You're treating on the edge of an "uncomfortable reality".

    Lol, thank god for tumblr. I have several academic papers and anecdotal statements on this but naturally would rather not going searching for them.

    Still yeah I expect SHEILD to do better then 1/6 for lead. Maybe to be fair 1/5 since Phil was a lock. Especially since all these actors besides Ming-na are pretty much unknowns. If these were big names well at least one can make the case for maximizing profits. Unknowns though yeah no such luck.

    Although I suppose no surprise Black males at least in Josh shows tend to be brought in later on.

    Sweet Kieran...it wasnt a direct assualt @ u but just those dat all in dat 'genre/fetish'.

    Just think abt if der was 'supposed' 2 b an Asian in any form of media d odds of it being an Asian female is @ least btwn 85%-90%, den add d odds of dat Asian female getting bangd by an Caucasian male.....ta-daaa.

    Not saying dat der aint exceptions but d Caucasian male asiafelia 'asian doll' fetish is waaaaaaay in d lead.

    Take 4 instance:

    Nikita
    ....completely surrounded by Caucasian males & d only ONLY Asian male given any feature slot was in 1 ep involving an Asian male/Caucasian female relnship was md a villain who...guess wat...was trying 2 assasinate his Caucasian wife & his Asian/Caucasian biracial child all 4 a cheap bs reason.

    Y cant der b an Asian Female with a Latino guy(not d 1's dat luk like dey cum frm Netherlands.LOL!) or Native American, Indian, Arab etc?

    Asian males r incredibly marginalised....do u remember d gr8 awesome movie "Warrior's Way" dat has a AM/CF relationship but most majority of reviewers & critics pretty much 'insulted' d movie based on dat relationship.

    Maybe we should wait until we see footage of the show beyond we start hitting the exoticism button?
