HOUSTON -- An award-winning local filmmaker, from The Fifth Ward, is making his mark in Hollywood.
Courtney Japaul Glaude's bold, unapologetic approach is all over his latest feature film "Blink". Inspired by what he saw his mother go through, "Blink" is based on the subject matter of Domestic Violence and the vicious cycle victims find themselves in.
CW39's Maggie Flecknoe sat down with Glaude, the director, writer and producer.

This public event and its associated festivities will kick off on Friday, March 2nd 2018 and will continue with annual recognition.
