Dissolving the distinction among subject, audience, and author, the visionary transmedia project, Question Bridge: Black Males, creates a uniquely vulnerable and intimate dialogue among black men nationwide, initiating a new kind of social network. In Question Bridge: Black Males, black men go to a safe space and record their questions, which are then answered by other men who may live miles away. The footage is evocatively presented in various ways, ranging from beautiful sculptural environments to Web forums and geolocative hotspots across the country.

Question Bridge: Black Males was produced by Songha and Company; Co-Produced by Innovent and farWord Inc.; Underwritten by Open Society Institute's Campaign for Black Male Achievement and Tribeca Film Institute; Supported by Bay Area Video Coalition, Sundance Institute's New Frontier Story Lab, UPM and DualStar Digital.
