“The Start of Dreams”, produced by Jennifer Gordon Thompson and directed by The Horne Brothers, is the story of award-winning director Kenny Leon who brings aspiring teenage actors to a Broadway stage in an intense monologue competition. In these challenging economic times, where Arts Education is considered expendable, Leon is determined to use his celebrity and influence to expose kids across the country to the wonderful world of theater. “The Start of Dreams” is packed with Hollywood’s elite, including Denzel Washington, Samuel L. Jackson and Phylicia Rashad, weighing in on this important art form and what it means to humanity. The Pan African Film Festival:
