History[ edit ] Thingyan is originated from the Buddhist version of a Hindu myth. The Brahma was so powerful that if the head were thrown into the sea it would dry up immediately. If it were thrown onto land it would be scorched. If it were thrown up into the air the sky would burst into flames.
These last few months, actually the last two years have been amazing.
Things are happening in my life that I never imagined would happen. As writers, we always dream about something big happening in our careers but we never really believe they will or can come true.
Where do I start? I guess with May 11th. It was an amazing night. Candiace Dillard, who plays Nikki, was there with her family. Jamelle, my husband, Michael, and I were there. Kirby Griffin, who shot the film came.
And Wes Hall, who plays Malcolm made it. The audience loved the film. They were laughing, fussing, and crying throughout the movie. That let us know that the film hit all the right cords with them.
A few days later, The Washington Blade wrote a wonderful review about the film. Jamelle, Emi, the script supervisor for the film, Michael and myself attended. The cast was not able to make it because they were busy with other projects.
But we represented for them. Jamelle participated in a panel discussion on diversity in Hollywood. Then we returned for the screening of Water. We won Best Film. That was so incredible. We were not expecting that at all.
