“On The Reel,” the first installment of the Metro-Manhattan Arts Facet’s film series, featured Wilhemina’s War, a documentary by filmmaker June Cross. The reception and screening were held at MIST, in Harlem.  Former Television news anchor and media consultant, Carol Jenkins,  moderated a conversation with the filmmaker and the audience.  The film chronicled one grandmother’s crusade against the scourge of HIV/AIDS running rampant in her hometown of Orangeburg, South Carolina. A donation from the event was given to St. Mary’s Center in Harlem.  The event was co-sponsored by Metro-Manhattan’s National Trends and Health Facets.
