Already having earned 41 film festival Awards including Dubai’s IFAME Golden Camel 2022 BEST EXPERIMENTAL & BEST HISTORICAL FILM plus 2022 Black Lady & 24 FPS’ 2021 BEST PERFORMER of the YEAR honors, on the Lunar New Year 2022 Black History Month (BHM) begin depicting a more than half century of artist activism by International Motion Picture Critics 2021 LIFE TIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARDEE Phillip E. Walker-MFA. After acknowledging PhilE’s foundations, this petite motion picture displays the igniting of Walker’s activist life beginning as a novice thespian realizing the power of art while delivering the “I Have A Dream” speech to his 1968 Southside of Chicago high school total population on the morning after Dr. King’s assassination. The Video Memoir then continues through Phil’s major participation in the movements that encouraged currently popular Black History Month & Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday celebrations through his African American Drama Company’s extensive traveling. Depicted next is this Walker family patriarch actively standing up against Hollywood producers’ illegal treatment of their employees. With the purpose of encouraging all 50 United States of America to officially recognize the new Juneteenth National Holiday, let us just call “2022 Black History Month” a memoir short film displaying performing arts as a justice making tool!

Director Biography - Phillip Eugene Walker

As with, Phillip Eugene Walker has been consumed during this new year with executing almost all of the work to create this Video Memoir. Dr. Ethel Pitts Walker has supplied extensive screenplay advice, Alberto Anaya Lopez served as sound engineer and that's all of the help received on this Production. Consequently, all but one of the 20 Awards won so far by 2022 Black History Month... has named Phillip, including 24 FPS Film Festival's BEST DIRECTOR. Adding to four Best Director nods during the 2020-21 season, this season he has already been honored as BEST DIRECTOR at International Motion Picture Critics Awards and International Art and Documentary Film Awards for Hollywood Actor Jobs. Due to being a member of the World's most at risk COVID-19 population, Mr. Walker's Hollywood employment has been quite curtailed. Therefore, he has spent most of his time during 2020 & 2021 mastering the art of short film promotion. This Channel's January 1, 2022 official launch has been the largest result of that new concentration. Of course, as you will see starting on February first, this 2022 Black History Month - Phillip E. Walker Video Memoir will make great use of the artist activist's more than 100 past live theatre directing stints.
