Thurs, 6/26, a private screening for the film "Six Blocks Wide", by Teresa K. Thorne, was shown at The Carver Theatre. Guests included actress Tonea Stewart; Director Yuri Shapochka; Producers Mariana Bolshinskya and Steven Antselevich, Shape Films; and many Birmingham friends and supporters - over 200 of us...!
The film is being submitted to Film Festivals all over the world. The script centers around a young girl and an old woman who stand up to a drug lord in an inner-city Birmingham neighborhood.
""The story arose from my early career in the Birmingham Police Department, patrolling public housing communities. It is about violence, courage, and community,"" said Thorne.
