“The Message
is Our Direction...”

“Only when lions have historians will hunters cease being heroes.” - African Proverb




Childhood, fairies, growing up, hope, time and vision, “A Complexion Change”, are directions and energies, which have led Fountainhead® Tanz Théâtre to develop, experience, accompany and support the forthcoming XXXI. 2016 Black International Cinema Berlin.

Time, winds of change and storms are what we humans experience, require and devote ourselves to, creating constructive and otherwise stuff too and so, we are sharing these experiences with ourselves, others and the world through the XXXI. 2016 Black International Cinema Berlin.

Join us, as we and you, stumble towards progress!

“Yes, we can and yes, we better…” - Barack Obama and Donald Muldrow Griffith
“I may not make it if I try, but I damn sure won’t if I don’t…” - Oscar Brown Jr.

Greetings and Welcome to our never ending and constantly expanding and hopefully progressing vision of an example of a developing and sharing society.

A Complexion Change has long been our created standard bearer for the inevitable historical developments in our ever changing society, societies and world!

We search for principles as guidelines toward human interaction, based on preservation, caring, sharing, education, courtesy and love, which always offer promising paths to human progress.

Talented filmmakers, seminar presenters and artists, whose visions are consummated into visually artistic presentations, offer our viewers perspectives toward lessons of humanity past, present and future which are also the ambitions and undertakings of Fountainhead® Tanz Théâtre, Black International Cinema Berlin, THE COLLEGIUM - Forum & Television Program Berlin, “Footprints in the Sand?” Exhibition and Cultural Zephyr e.V.

All of which were initially creations of a group of four invited persons from the USA to Berlin and a German colleague, who decided to establish ongoing efforts which utilized our collective inculcation, acquired through many years in various circumstances and subsequently added to current and future efforts, thereby providing returns on the investments absorbed through our lifelong experiences, to the societies in which we reside and hopefully elsewhere as well!

Thank you for sharing your and our experiences, past, present, future and welcome to the XXXI. 2016 Black International Cinema Berlin.

Prof. Donald Muldrow Griffith
