Philadelphia Latino Film Festival: “We Breathe, We Live: Brotherly Love Protest Stories”
We Breathe, We Live: Brotherly Love Protest Stories is a film that uses the power of storytelling to present the first-person experiences of seven men who participated in the George Floyd-inspired Black Lives Matter protests that occurred in Philadelphia during the summer of 2020.
The film is book-ended with the work of poet and activist Perry ‘Vision’ DiVirgilio, who created and performs two new original works for the project.
The film was directed by Glenn Holsten in collaboration with First Person Arts and Philadelphia’s Engaging Males of Color (EMOC) program, which is part of the Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services. The stories, or “protest-imonials,” are woven together with conversations about race, trauma, and healing that feature EMOC Coordinator Gabriel Bryant and his colleagues Kevin Aleem and Shaiheed Days.
