About The Show

After reading an article stating that African American men were traveling to Brazil for sex vacations with Brazilian prostitutes and the adulation of the Brazilian women, Al Greeze decided to produce Frustrated.

Greeze wanted to either confirm or deny and reveal the answers from the men themselves and find out if it is for love and companionship or just sex -- and identify the underlying cause(s). The article, "Blame It On Rio" by Professor William Jelani Cobb, was published by Essence Magazine in September 2006.

Through research, personal accounts and testimonies from men who fall in love with or date Brazilian women and reactions and opinions of both American and Brazilian women, the film uncovers heartfelt emotions triggered by complex issues -- including the economic and educational divide between the sexes and the possibly unachievable roles each places on the other. Although the film examines the controversial topic of relationships outside of the African American race and the country, the film’s goal is to elicit open conversation and communication amongst men and women, strengthen the family dynamic and give both sides a platform to give an honest account.

Frustrated asks such questions as: Why are African American men finding love outside of their race? What do African American men feel is missing from African American woman, and are African American women now in competition with Brazilian women as they are with other races? Is there really a threat? And are the women saying "good riddance, we don’t need you" or are they fighting for their men?

Greeze Films question, test and expose controversial topics, desires and issues that are not often talked about by society or within communities. To learn more, visit the official website and follow on Facebook (facebook.com/GreezeFilms).
