In this collaboration between co-producers and co-writers Laura L. Fowler and Al Santana, director Al weaves this experimental structure into a story that focuses on two sisters with opposite views about social responsibility, the role of the artist and their quest for understanding. Aliyah, a self-styled revolutionary filmmaker, is producing a documentary about the 1960s Black Power Movement. Her sister Valerie, on the other hand, is a poet whose work centers on themes of sensuality and love. They challenge each on the purity of art and the need for art to inspire social change. Together, they discover a politicized Lorraine Hansberry.
"One People" explores serious political issues in very human terms." St.Clair Bourne, Producer/Director, Chamba Media Works
