Leonard Abrams

United States of America

Leonard Abrams is a writer for print as well as a filmmaker, and an editor of both. He published and edited the East Village Eye magazine from 1979 to 1987, created the multiracial hip hop club Hotel Amazon in 1988, and since then was Music Editor of Details magazine [NY] and US Editor of Soul Underground [London] and Masthead literary magazine [Melbourne]. He began traveling in Brazil in the early 1990s and started this, his first major filmmaking effort, in 2001. His transition to motion picture media comes from a desire "to tell stories in a more direct fashion, more like the original storytellers did."
