Million Father March Platform Grows
Film Director Alex Muñoz Joins List of Leaders partnering in this Social Movement.
Riverside (I-Newswire) September 7, 2012 - The 2012 Inland Empire Million Father March, coordinated by Street Positive C.E.O. and Million Father March Organizer Terry Boykins, hosted by Bishop Lacy Sykes Jr., senior pastor of Cross Word Christian Church takes place tomorrow Saturday, Sept. 8, 2012 kicking off at 8 a.m.
An advocate for social change, film director Alex Muñoz makes films that utilize edginess and style to humanize marginalized populations and give voice to the disaffected. On September 8, his short film "Dilemma" which dissects racial tensions at a Los Angeles-area juvenile detention camp, will be featured as he presents during the Inland Empire Million Father March in Riverside, Calif.
Muñoz is the founder and creative director of FYI: Films by Youth Inside, a revolutionary program that teaches film-making to youth incarcerated in probation camps. Based on his experiences working in the camps, Muñoz wrote and directed Dilemma, a short film starring several of his FYI graduates, which premiered in New York at the Urbanworld Film Festival and had its European premiere at the Torino International Film Festival in 2006. Those attending the Inland Empire Million Father March are in for a very real treat by this young innovative director.
Muñoz received his MFA at USC’s School of Film and Television. His first short film, Por Vida, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. His Showtime movie, Riot, was named “Best Made-for-TV Movie” in the NY Daily News, and garnered the Jury Prize at the Geneva Film Festival. His debut feature film, Living the Life, starring Jay Hernandez, was released in 2005 and garnered an Honorable Mention for Best Domestic Feature Film at the 2003 New York Latino Film Festival. Muñoz‘s first documentary, L’il Skrappy Boy, won the Best Documentary Short Award at the 2007 Urbanworld Film Festival in New York.
Muñoz is a Sundance Fellow, and a Rockefeller Foundation, USA Artist Foundation, and Creative Capital Foundation nominee.
Participation and attendance is expected to be significant. An east coast/west coast movement has been stirred up between the Detroit Million Father March organizers and the West Coast organizers on the challenge of having the largest number of fathers to participate in this initiative of fathers taking their child or children to school on the first day.
