From its title, you can probably deduce that GhettoPhysics:  Will the Real Pimps and Ho’s Please Stand Up! is a one-of-a-kind movie.  This is not surprising since one of the filmmaker’s claim to fame is another one-of-a-kind film – William H. Arntz’s What the BLEEP Do We Know!?, the cult film seen by more than 100 million viewers worldwide since its release in 2004.   GhettoPhysics is based on E. Raymond Brown’s 2002 book, “Will the Real Pimps and Ho’s Please Stand Up!”  Brown, a musician, music producer, actor, author, and workshop facilitator brings all his social, anthropological and metaphysical knowledge and skills to bear in this, his first, motion picture.

A hybrid documentary, the story follows a student on her planned entry into a major university with the help of promised financial aid.  It turns out to be a rocky path, as forces beyond her control seek to determine her fate.   Over the course of her story, she (and we, the audience) learn how the Pimps and Ho’s game (dominators and dominated) is played out at every level of society:  from the streets, to the corporate boardroom, to the classroom.

Interviews with Dr. Cornel West, MC and producer KRS-1, economist John Perkins, television producer Norman Lear, former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, Ghanaian activist  Brother Ishmael Tetteh and some colorful street characters unveil the workings of the world’s eternal power game.  Great contemporary music and animation add potent spice to the film whose message, you gotta stand up and choose what role you’re going to play in every life situation, is enormously empowering.

The interviews are all enlightening – the entire film is compelling entertainment.  A perfect revelation and motivation at a time when millions are shouting, “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!”  Here’s why you are … and what you can do about it!

On Saturday, October 9th from 4 pm to 6 pm, we invite you out to participate in the first official “GhettoPhysics – Speak Truth to Power” Panel at the Stone Fish Grill (800 Capital Center Blvd – Largo, MD). The panel is free.

Come out and meet the director, E Raymond Brown and our distinguished panel as we discuss, share, pontificate, learn, educate and dialogue with each other in a very interactive, informal, organic forum where we will talk further about the controversial hybrid documentary film – “GhettoPhysics: Will the Real Pimps and Ho’s Please Stand Up!”.

We want to hear from you.  So whether you have seen the film, are planning to see it at a later date, want to hear more about the film, are on the fence about the film, or you think this film “is not for you” – this panel discussion is definitely for you.  Come out, meet the director, hear what the panel has to say, and learn what the film’s message is all about.

“I think it’s a wonderful film. And he (referring E. Raymond Brown’s earlier comment) is right – I don’t talk like that. (Referring to the use of the word Pimp & Ho).  I had to even think about whether or not I would participate in the film. But the message is so critical, and people have to understand that sometimes you have to use language that will get peoples attention. And certainly his language gets people’s attention. And I think he has accurately described what’s going on in our country.”
