Question Bridge: Black Males is an innovative transmedia project that facilitates a dialogue between a critical mass of black men from diverse and contending backgrounds and creates a platform for them to represent and redefine black male identity in America. Artists Chris Johnson, Hank Willis Thomas, Bayet Ross Smith and Kamal Sinclair traveled the country, collecting over 1,500 question and answer videos from over 150 men. They molded this rich content into an insightful, provocative and entertaining five-channel video installation-a portal into an inner realm of black male consciousness. It premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival New Frontier, and has been exhibited at more than 30 museums, festivals, conferences, and cultural institutions worldwide.  Run time for the entire video is 2 hours and 53 minutes.
