Take off the sunglasses

The photographer at the African Film Festival told me, “You are not the director, producer, actor, you are a guest, take off the sunglasses.” I was clearly channeling producer/director Rob Allyn, because after all I was the guest of Sandra Washburn, the Executive Director and Producer of Pathbreakers, the award winner of the Best Short Documentary. Pathbreakers is a documentary about Oysters & Pearls, an organization working with sighted and nonsighted students in Uganda in a STEM-oriented program emphasizing robotics and video game design. As you can see sliding through the images, in response to the photographer, I tried putting the sunglasses on top of my head, but the photographer dismissively said, “Off with the shades.” The result is the third image, the portrait of a chastened me standing stoically on the red carpet. Congratulations to Sandra Washburn, Debi Lang, Director, @JacobSOdur, Tim Werner, Colorist, and many others that contributed to this important documentary. Wardrobe by: glasses—Barton Perreira; doublebreasted jacket—John Coggins, Savile Row; pocket square—Etro; trousers—Incotex; banana motif shoes—Stubbs and Wootton. *Take off the sunglasses
