In an effort to combat change, EightPM has proudly partnered with the Black Lives Matter Foundation. This initiative proposes that the film industry come together to pledge their support to the Black Lives Matter movement and spread its important message.
BLM’s mission is to “eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes”.
In support of this message, EightPM is leveraging its network of film creators to integrate BLM’s apparel, accessories, and message into the content that we watch everyday. By making this message a powerful part of pop culture, we make it impossible to ignore.
As storytelling is often a means to escape the real world, we cannot become complacent, or become desensitized, to the harsh realities of today’s injustices towards the Black community. Instead, we are bringing the BLM message to the forefront.
