Thought you might be interested Thursday: The Wait, a documentary

Sharing simply because this is a good watch and a slice of DC history.   Here's the set-up from Kent Boese, ANC 1A chair:
In November 2014, DC artist Nekisha Durrett painted a mural on the south wall of the Mothership restaurant called "The Wait". Many may remember that Mothership (which sadly is closing today) is in the former Brown's Caribbean Bakery building located at Georgia Avenue and Lamont Street, NW. As part of the mural project, the artist and filmmaker Lorie Shaull made a documentary on the artistic process, the artistic concept behind the mural, and the Park View neighborhood. The documentary is just over 11 minutes and can be watched at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNzFyygYcLE.

I'm pleased that ANC 1A supported Nekisha when she first approached the Commission with her vision to bring this work to Georgia Avenue. It was also an honor to sit down and chat with her and the filmmaker as they created the documentary, some of which was included in the film. I hope you all enjoy the documentary.

With kind regards,

Kent Kent C. Boese, Chair
Advisory Neighborhood Commission 1A
Single Member District (SMD) 1A08
