Arthur Jafa & Elissa Blount Moorhead (TNEG)

TNEG™, a motion picture studio “modeled on the production philosophies of Motown, Pixar, and Dogme”. TNEG’s principal aim is the creation a black cinema “capable of matching the power, beauty and alienation of black music”. TNEG’s theoretical propositions concerning black cinema imagine “Not just new narratives but new aesthetics, new technical parameters, new intensities” all in the service of an emergent “black cinema as central (culturally, socially, and economically) to the 21st century as was black music to the 20th century”. TNEG is Arthur Jafa, Elissa Blount Moorhead, and Malik Sayeed (left to right).
