The Sun Rises in Eastern Screens at the 2022 Fall New Jersey Film Festival This Friday


The Sun Rises in the East by Tayo Giwa is a rich and heartfelt film about how the black community of Bedford-Stuyvesant (Brooklyn, New York) created the most incredible paradise for self-expression, education and the supplementary provision called The East. The East’s story begins with the beginning of integration into Bed-Stuy after the passing of Brown v. Board of Education in 1954. Despite the ruling, unfair conditions persisted for black youth, and community members recognized an urgent need for more enrichment. Jitu Weusi, Al Vann and other key members of the community proposed to have a center of creativity and education where the needs and resources to excel in all aspects of life would be created. This institution would also celebrate the entire African Diaspora and the different African cultures on the continent. The Sun Rises in the East is a wonderfully rewarding experience that truly magnifies what happens when great care is married to fantastic ideas to create a utopia that has fostered prosperity for an entire generation.
