This film was not planned and therefore the performance video captured is not the best quality. I created this film after attending an anti-Trump protest rally, a few days after I went to see Paul Mills aka Poez perform at The Bitter End in NYC. The emotions around town during the 2016 election were everywhere - on the street, in the clubs and coffee shops. I was so moved by the mood around town, I felt compelled to create a film and Poez's words in 'This Is Not The Time' was, to me, the perfect reflection of discourse -or lack thereof - taking place in NYC at the time.
Poez wrote this song in 2008 and this song is not specifically about the current U.S. administration but rather the need for civil societies to respect human and civil rights.
