FILMFEST: Pan-African Film Festival

On Thursday, February 15, 2018, the BAL Academy was invited to screen the documentary hip-hop film, The Killing of the Fifth Element.


Our boys, in their BAL uniforms, joined other students at the Baldwin Hill Theatre to screening the film.

The film argues about the state of hip-hop today with its beginning as a tool for social justice and social issues of the time. 

After popcorn and the movie, the boys met with the film director, Moe Reed.  Meeting the filmmaker, the boys recited Invictus to show their appreciation.

Although there were other middle schools present, the BAL boys represented our school well.  After the other schools departed, our boys stayed to make sure that we left the theatre as close to cleanliness as possible.
