Middle Passage Productions, a non-profit media enterprise was founded by Barbara E. Allen in 1992. For this venture, Allen assembled professionals who share her vision that media should include multi-cultural perspectives. 


These dedicated professionals attempt to give sound to stifled voices; visibility to the invisible; and attention to the ignored. This multicultural team is committed to presenting a positive media image of people of color to audiences throughout the world.

“Unlike all the other art forms, film is able to seize and render the passage of time, to stop it, almost to possess it in infinity. I’d say that film is the sculpting of time.”

– Andrei Tarkovsky
