“This issue is very special to me. It highlights many of my favorite childhood to adulthood Black Women in Film & Television,” explained Angel L. Brown-Ross, Editor-In-Chief of CINEMATIQ. “I also had an amazing time and learned a lot, interviewing Leslie Harris who wrote, produced and got her film, “Just Another Girl On The I.R.T.” distributed in the 90’s.” “ I am super excited about REEL READY, guest columnist, Leyla T. Rosario, cinematographer of the new series, “The Bridge.” It is particularly essential for this magazine to highlight as many women cinematographers, producers, writers, women in general ‘behind’ the lens, showing one range/ depth and knowledge of the art; something I plan to cover ievery issue.”
