Bound: Africans versus African Americans: Director and Actor Peres Owino
Writer, director and actor Peres Owino recently visited us at The Project Room to discuss her new film and directorial debut, Bound: Africans versus African Americans premiering at the Seattle International Film Festival. Peres has great stories to share about what went into making the film, her younger years secretly study theater, and where she learned to use her imagination to create things. Bound: Africans versus African Americans is showing at SIFF Cinema Uptown on June 7 at 5:30pm and June 8 at 2:30pm. She and producers Isaiah Washington and Tene Carter are scheduled to attend both screenings. For more information check out the SIFF website.
Thanks for the visit, Peres!
