Aladdin Movie Review

SUPPORT OUR PROJECT – “WHIRLPOOL” movie written and directed by Imani Mitchell, founder of the Black Women United (BWU) Black Women’s March and recipient of the 2017 Exceptional Woman of Color-Excellence Award … “A major key to filming #Whirlpool was ensuring that the film reflected Sacramento, my hometown. I was intentional in showcasing businesses and organizations that represented the diversity of our city. A big location for our film is South Restaurant. Owned by N’Gina Kavookjian, a Black woman who is killing it in the restaurant game! This is more than just a film. It’s a tribute to our city.”
