The Undershepherd Released in 2012, this film has yet made it to distribution. A one of a kind inside look at the AfricanAmerican religious underworld, the Undershepherd touches on a variety of subjects that are kept secret and swept under the rug in our community. We all know what goes on within a Church, and the quest to become a Mega Church, but this film brings to the forefront of what many may think but won’t say. Russ Parr did an excellent job in

writing and directing this film. With an all-star cast headed by Isaiah Washington, this film touched not only your heart, but reached out to your Soul. As we await for it’s distribution, in the mainstream, we can only hope that it will be picked up and marketed throughout the African-American community for it’s an eyeopening look into how one man’s ambition can overshadow God’s purpose, but not without punishment.

Russ Parr Presents “The Undershepherd” starring Isaiah Washington.

An Academy Award winning Documentary, “UnDefeated” takes a hard look at an inner -city High School Football Team that players struggle with everyday life. Not having the World at their fingertips, these inner-city youths make the best out of

the cards that were dealt to them in life. With a stern, but fair and compassionate coach, he reaches the heart to bring out the Best the Kids have to Offer! A Must See!

As we take hold of this month and start to celebrate the lives of those who sacrificed in order for us to live the comfortable life we live today, I want to take the time to say “Thank You” to our Customer’s that have been supporting us during what will be our 8 years in business in August 2013. They say that a company first 5 years are the hardest, and that statistically Small Businesses fold within the first 5 years. Well with the economy being in the state of flux as it is now, we have experience a downshift, but we, as a company, continue to push forward to meet our milestones. But none of this would be possible without the support and willingness of our returning customers to continue to do business with us, and appreciate our Niche in the Market. We are looking forward to enhancing your experience with BlackMovieOasis.com and are assured that the new changes coming in the future will be to everyone’s delight. It’s up to us to support each other’s dream, and even though we sell mainstream titles, we seek and search for the quality Independent Films that may not make it to the Mainstream for Theater Distribution, but are released on DvD. We hope to give those who sacrificed time, efforts and experienced financial hardship to reach their dreams an outlet for their movies! God Bless,

As we embark on Black History Month, we felt it was important to focus on someone who doesn’t normally get a lot of publicity, but have made a tremendous impact on daily life. This month we are focusing on “Miss Mary” Coley, an African American Mid-Wife that was the focal point of George Stoney a filmmaker that Originally intended the film to be a teaching tool for illiterate MidWives in the rural areas. But as the film evolved it took on it’s own persona and was utilized by UNESCO globally to teach the methods of delivery. This film eventually evolved into a classic nonfiction film, highlighting the methodology behind the preparation and delivery of healthy babies in rural conditions ranging from decent to deplorable. We only hope you enjoy this classic just as much as the heritage it has within the AfricanAmerican Film culture.
