How did this documentary get picked up for BAMcinemaFest?
I was talking to BAM, and BAM offered me the screening. And the beauty of it was the timing. I had been talking to them for some time saying “okay, there’s a 10th anniversary and Back in the Days: Remix is coming out. I knew this anniversary was coming from a year ago, and I didn’t want to put my film out six months after the anniversary, but I didn’t want it to come out before this happens. I wanted to have this screening take place at a time when this book was coming out.

And once BAM liked the idea, they did everything, and they ran with it. They said "We’re gonna have a festival, and we’re going to put Jamel Shabazz on the cover of every poster." And now every poster uses the same image.
