Director Biography - Rome Imari Mubarak

Born and raised in South-central Los Angeles, I have had an extraordinary life as an African American male transcending stereotypes by being exposed to the world and its different mediums by living abroad, owning International real estate and seeing my own country and her people's from the outside looking in.
Film and photography have always been an integral part of my life since childhood. Conveying life's magic as a member of my high school's yearbook staff to present day as a re-entry graduate student at UCLA's Extension program. Presently on the Director's track, I also find myself wanting to study cinematography as well since that is my childhood background.
To date, with several completed screenplays to my name, I am eager to learn more and move forward in their development.
