This week’s short is “Voices of Strength,” a film directed and edited by Roger Habon, produced by Andrew Matson, conceived by Antonio Hicks and Andrew Matson. Voices of Strength is five female African artists who express the modern African experience by dance and theater (they were in town this fall). Habon is a local filmmaker and one of the most brilliant hiphop producers of our day (listen to the beats he made for THEESatisfaction's masterpiece "Cabin Fever"). And Matson is a music and culture critic for the Seattle Times. Those who are familiar with Habon's music will immediately see that the film is as beautiful, as sensual, as ethereal as his beats. Indeed, the rhythm of the images suggest the beat for the ambient sounds.
