This documentary; “Walk on the River” is created by the makers of “Message to the People: A Story of Malcolm X” produced by Baba Aundar Ma’at and directed by Born Logic Allah for Melaneyes Media. With the success of “Message to the People” (2017) Aundar and Logic wanted to bring their next project closer to home.
“We wanted to do a film that would directly impact our own community. This project is something we’d talked about doing a few times before and we came to the conclusion that the right time for it is now.” says Born Logic, Director of the film.
This film is produced by Melaneyes Media which is an independently Black owned and operated company. Because we don’t have major funding or backing from a larger financial institution; we are choosing to pay for this project with our own resources coupled with contributions from supporters and fans.
“This is very important to us. It allows us to keep creative control of our projects, ownership of the products we make and sell. Self financing also insulates us from outside entities that might try to influence or distort the narratives we choose to tell. Melaneyes Media is devoted creating culturally enriching, educational Black films and videos; so we are committed to developing more films like Message to the People and Walk On The River in the future.”
