Community Cinema Short Films: Team Dream and Matriarch
Director: Luchina Fisher
Run time: 17 mins
Team Dream, the first documentary short from the 2022 Queen Collective program, directed and produced by Luchina Fisher, an award-winning director, writer and producer whose work is at the intersection of race, gender and identity. Fisher’s film follows Ann and Madeline, who are 82 and 77 years old respectively, revealing that nothing — not age, not race, and certainly not Chicago’s notorious weather — will stop them from training for the National Senior Games, where they will likely be the only Black women competing in the sim events in their age group. Subjects Derrick Q Milligan and Madeline Murphy Rabb scheduled to attend.
