Written by Anthony 'Fascious' Martinez, Directed by Shidan Majidi

 PENUMBRA (a shadow of a shadow) autobiographically illustrates the life of a Puerto Rican boy growing up in the Bronx who powerfully confronts issues concerning family and self-identity through rhythms of Hip Hop and Poetry. His father has been gone for 5 years, only communicating through letters and collect calls. His mother is afraid to tell him the truth. Raised by a single parent, Anthony in turn is challenged to discover manhood by first understanding what it means to be a woman. Described as “Bold, daring, and fearless…truly innovative” by HBO Def Poetry's Producer, Kamilah Forbes.
