Join Us for the Film Screening of “Lalo’s House”

Testing! Testing! Did a test of the film and sound yesterday of “Lalo’s House”. Looks great. Sounds great. Nice auditorium. I got emotional with the thought of this coming Friday and how special this is. Please join us in celebrating a dear friend, fellow alum of Howard University, School of C, and “Showtime” Marching Band Bison by supporting and experiencing an important film and discussion.

About the award-winning documentary:

As a writer, producer, and director of “Lalo’s House”, Kelley Kali has created a poignant film inspired by true events, telling the story of two young Haitian sisters who unknowingly get trapped in a child trafficking ring. The film includes Gracelle Beauvais (The Jamie Foxx Show, Spider-Man 2017, and White House Down) who is an Executive Producer and actress. And, includes Jimmy Jean-Louis from “Claws”. Trailer:;;

“Lalo’s House” is taking the 2018 film festival season by storm (Cannes, ABFF, and Telluride), recently winning the inaugural Richard and Ellen Sandor Prize, at the Black Harvest Film Festival. A quote from that film festival is, “Kelley Kali’s gift for portraying such a devastating topic in such a beautiful way reminds us of Toni Morrison’s writing.”

Kelley accepted the silver medal in the “Narrative (Domestic Film Schools) category for “Lalo’s House” during the 45th Annual Student Academy Awards on Thursday, October 11, in Beverly Hills.
