Onassis Foundation USA

In October 2016, MF Productions assisted The Onassis Foundation USA with their Festival for Arts and Ideas, Antigone Now. The organization is committed to the promotion of the Hellenic culture. By cooperating with educational and cultural institutions in Greece and throughout the Americas, the Onassis Foundation USA promotes cultural relations.

Carrie Mae Weems performed Past Tense on the opening night with singers Eisa Davis, Alicia Hall Moran, and Imani Uzuri. Musical performances included Hamiet Bluiett, Graham Haynes, Yayoi Ikawa, and Juliette Jones. A screening of selected segments from the documentary Antigone in Ferguson, was followed by a dramatic reading of scenes from Antigone with Reg E. Cathey (House of Cards, The Wire), Gloria Reuben (ER), Glenn Davis (24, The Unit), and Samira Wiley (Orange Is the New Black).
