Moguldom Studios is kicking off Summer 2014 with a series of groundbreaking and thought‐provoking films including A Genius leaves The Hood, Gunland, The Swirl, Black Church, Inc., Bottoms Up and 72%. The Swirl is scheduled to be released on May 27, 2014.
Known for their revolutionary style of documentaries called “docutainment,” Moguldom Studios is leading the way in producing non‐theatrical films through digital networks by keeping at the pulse of trending topics that are relevant in today’s ever‐evolving world. Moguldom Studios has seen enormous success with this style of releases, with A Genius Leaves The Hood: The Unauthorized Story of Jay‐Z debuting as one of the best‐selling documentaries on Google Play and iTunes. A Genius Leaves The Hood is also on Google Play’s top 10 list along with Gunland, another recently released documentary.
The Swirl tackles societal and cultural issues relating to interracial dating, asking the question; Is it the new trend or still taboo? There was a time when interracial dating was a taboo practice that could lead to physical harm or even death. Today it seems to be of greater acceptance as with celebrity power couples Kanye West and Kim Kardashian or Ice-T and Coco. The Swirl takes a comedic look at this serious topic by digging into the cultural shift in attitudes around interracial relationships.
The Swirl unveils the real‐life conversations folks are having in the shadows on the subject that have finally been brought to light in this enlightening and entertaining documentary. Speaking to men and women on both sides of the debate, the feature length documentary delivers honest and hilarious dialogue on interracial dating by comedians such as Esther Ku, Rodney Perry, and Reggie Jackson.
The film dares viewers to take a hard look at their own perceptions. Through in‐depth interviews, expert commentary, comedic conjecture and surprising statistical data, the film covers everything from self‐hate and racism to the concept of love being colorblind.
Whether you turn up your nose and wince every time you see someone dating outside his or her race or accept “swirling” with open arms, this film bravely addresses the realities of race relations in the 21st century. The Swirl forces us to speak openly and honestly about interracial dating in a way not often discussed in public. When the final credits roll, you’ll be left with a brand new perspective that will either reshape or reconfirm your views on this taboo topic.
“Moguldom Studios is very excited about the lineup of groundbreaking documentary releases for Summer 2014. These films represent the always‐evolving issues as they relate to society and culture,” says Marve Frazier, Chief Creative Officer at Moguldom Media Group. “It is our vision for those who view the documentaries, to not only be entertained, but to walk away with knowledge to affect change,” she adds.
The Swirl will be released on May 27, 2014, with the DVD and digital download available for Purchase on Amazon.com, Google Play, iTunes and www.moguldomstudios.com.
