NEW HAVEN — It’s a concept often overlooked and certainly underestimated, the difference between existing and actually living. And if you haven’t grasped it yet, you may not have experienced the power of your dreams.
On Feb. 15, The Yale African American Affinity Group (YAAA) is debuting “Powered By Dreams” in their 2014 film festival. The journey of Dream Chaser no. 1 reflects the road every dream chaser endures when they are powered by dreams.
The hours for the 2014 Yale African American Film Festival screenings are from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Whitney Humanities Center in New Haven, CT. Admission is free. It runs until Feb. 16.
This showing is a part of a four-day event is dedicated to highlighting the contributions of African Americans in films through the Yale African American Film Festival.
This film documents the founder of the Dream Support Network (DSN), Abdul R-I. Muhammad’s steps to recovery after a near-death experience, which leads to self-discovery and the conscious decision to live life without fear or limitations. He uses his gift of life and to inspire others through the development of his foundation. His commitment to “12 for 12”, a challenge in which you accomplish twelve dreams in twelve months is shown in his travels around the world. From sky diving, to sumo wrestling and then purchasing an ice cream truck for the inception of a first of its kind campaign, he continues to make dreams come true.
