From the executive producers of Introducing Dorothy Dandridge and Lackawanna Blues, Lionsgate and Codeblack Films present a mind-bending psychological drama starring Halle Berry as Frankie Murdoch in Frankie & Alice. A true story of African-American go-go dancer, Frankie, who has multiple personalities (dissociative identity disorder or “DID”), the film dives into the struggle of a woman trying to stay true to herself while fighting two inner alter egos — a seven-year-old child named Genius and a Southern white, racist woman named Alice. Halle Berry, having dealt with depression in the past and attempted suicide, wishes this film will give hope and support to those struggling with mental illnesses. The famed actress stars in and produced the film, which is in theatres now. Emma Kombora

Emma Kombora first found her interest for writing after graduating a journalism program in which she was Entertainment Editor for a youth-led magazine called Say Word through East Metro Youth Services in Scarborough. Through the same program at East Metro and other art/music initiatives in Toronto, she got a taste of everything that goes into journalism from writing and editing to photography. She hopes through Urbanology she can take her experience and knowledge to the next level and bring a new narrative to the world of entertainment and arts.
