Mini Bio (1)
Cedi Ali Rajah began his formal film training at the ripe old age of twelve, thanks to a seventh-grade video class in his native Detroit. He gained formal recognition for an anti-drug PSA he wrote, directed and produced while still in middle school, and he then continued his love affair with the arts by dabbling across disciplines. Following stints as a writer, dancer, poet, musician, essayist, visual artist and sometime-theater actor, he settled on the written page as his primary focus. More formal training via Morehouse College produced a B.A. degree in English & Linguistics as well as a commitment to telling stories rooted in his cultural experience that reflect the universal human condition. An effort to marry his skills as a dramatic writer and his experience on-stage placed him back into the director's chair, and he did his graduate study at California Institute of the Arts in a theater and film directing program. Since leaving academia he's been awarded the Barbara Boyle Scholarship Award for excellent participation in IFP's minority mentoring program, Project: Involve. Black Man (2004) is his first offering to the professional filmmaking community.
