Between Cynicism and Hope by Geraldine Ah-Sue

I’ve been thinking about the idea of suspicion lately. There is a lot to be wary about, and yet the idea of suspicion presents an infinite range of possibility – for the creation of counter-narratives and counter-cultures, for example. I would argue that there must be some slight inkling of suspicion that continues to motivate the work that CAAM does today.

Award Winning Media Fund Films

Several films we’ve funded have received acceptance into film festivals and a record number have gone on to win awards. To start off with seven CAAM films were screened at our own festival: MOSQUE IN MORGANTOWN, A SONG FOR OURSELVES, FRUITFLY, AHEAD OF THE MAJORITY: THE PATSY MINK STORY, PROJECT KASHMIR and WHATEVER IT TAKES. Congratulations to all the filmmakers!
