takoTako je usvojeno dijete i raste u porodici sa dvije majke, lezbijke koje vode računa o njemu. Druži se školskom drugaricom Fatimom, drugovi u školi ga nazivaju Bounty što označava nekoga ko se ponaša kao bijelac, a izvana izgleda kao crnac.
Tako ne zna ko mu je otac i u svom albumu skuplja sličice crnih pjevača i glumaca i mašta da mu je neko od njih otac.


bounty-2Zaključuje da su velike šanse da mu je otac poopularni holandski reper Dutch i kada to kaže svojim surinamskim školskim drugarima ovi mu kažu da će ako se bude ponašao kao bijelac u crnoj koži samo obrukati oca.
Tako odlučuje da postane crnac i počne da vježba da se ponašao kao crnac.
Kada se konačno susretne sa Dirty Man dobija lekciju koju će pamtiti cjeli život i rođendansko slavlje o kakvom nije ni sanjao.

Suština ove lijepe priče je da moramo da naučimo da prihvatamo druge ljude onakve kakvi jesu, bez osude i želje da ih mjenjamo. Da bi to postigli moramo prvo prihvatiti sami sebe. Svi se mi tokom života mjenjamo u skladu sa načinom života i godinama postajemo svjesniji svojih želja, promašaja i dostignuća. Zadovoljni ili ne to smo što smo i društvu u kojem živimo možemo ponuditi samo to i ništa više. Sve drugo je laž.

Tako, an adopted black kid, is raised by two white lesbian mothers. He's the whitest black kid in school and the other black kids bully him by calling him 'Bounty', after the coconut-filled chocolate bar: black on the outside, white on the inside. Tako doesn't know who his father is and he fantasizes that his father might be a big star like Dutch-Surinamese soccer stars like Clarence Seedorf or Ruud Gullit. To his surprise, Tako finds out that there's a good chance that his biological father might be the popular Dutch gangster rapper Dirty Man. When two Surinamese bullies tell him his father would be ashamed to have a 'bounty' as a son, Tako is left with only one solution: he has to become blacker… For a fee his bullies train Tako in becoming black. When he finally meets Dirty Man in person Tako learns a powerful lesson about staying true to yourself.

Od režisera Jonatana Villara smo dobili pet kratkih filmova pod nazivom ENLACES (Linkovi) Priče sa kojima smo svi povezani na neki način.
Radi se o spletu kratkih priča koje je većina nas čitalaca ovog sajta doživjela, svako na svoj način. Neke naše male priče ćemo pamtiti cjeli život a neke ćemo pokušavati zaboraviti, vejrovatno uzaludno!
Tinejdzerski dani nam uglavnom ostanu kao neko upozorenje da poslije svake ljubavi, žželje ili strasti idu razočarenje, strah i patnja.
Tako je barem u tinejdzerkom dobu, a kasnije dolaze neke nove priče.

ENLACES, es un proyecto que nunca termina; parte de un desamor, una historia fugaz pero de mucho amor, donde uno deja y el otro sufre, eso es lo que cuenta “2* el amor ridículamente imaginario”; en “1* la tarea del colegio” cualquiera se puede identificar con la historia de estos dos amigos adolescentes y su despertar sexual, donde no hay etiquetas (por lo menos a esa edad); en cambio en “3* rotos” cuenta una historia que no prosperó, una pareja que rompe con su amor sin importar el dolor del otro, donde el ultimo encuentro es un flashback constante a lo buenos momentos.

The Hinterlands ( 2013)



Director: Brandon Ivie
Producer: Annie Cull
Writers: Michelle Elliott, Danny Larsen
Genre: Musical, Web series
Country: USA
Year:2013

In the middle of nowhere, growing up gay is the worst.
Hinterlands1Meet Paul. He’s 16. He’s into theoretical physics. He lives in the middle of nowhere. And he’s gay. Being a scrawny, queer science nerd practically makes him a bully magnet. And as the harassment piles up, Paul contemplates taking his own life. In THE HINTERLANDS, a six-part musical miniseries, Paul struggles to keep his head above water as he confronts intolerance, his sexuality and the rocky path of adolescence.

Hinterlands2We wanted to respond to the issue of gay bullying in a way that would help kids like Paul understand that they're incredibly valuable members of our human community and that they are inherently worthy of love and compassion.  We decided to do what we do best - write a musical.  As storytellers and songwriters, we can ask questions, create empathy and make change.  By creating the character of Paul we believe we will be giving young people a person with whom they can relate and empathize.  By watching Paul's journey to discover how to cope with the day-to-day bullying he faces, teens can gain strength and be inspired to overcome their own obstacles. Yes, “it gets better” for gay youth who make it through their difficult childhood and teenage years, but The Hinterlands is our attempt to help all bullied young people find and embrace their own innate worthiness NOW, despite the onslaught of hatred they must survive every day.
Hinterlands3 A guiding factor in the creation of the Hinterlands as a musical web series – rather than a staged production – was our belief that kids need to be able to access a story like this from the safety of their own laptops, iPads and smart phones. And kids in the real hinterlands are the most in need of a project like this, as some communities are highly intolerant of gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgender kids.
