DIRECTOR: RASHAAD ERNESTO GREEN

A steamy summertime romance between 17-year-old aspiring poet Ayanna (Zora Howard), preparing to head off to college, and a twentysomething music producer (Joshua Boone), leads to consequences that neither is prepared for in Green’s sophomore feature, shot on location in Harlem in sumptuous, rough-edged 16mm. Adept in portraying both the dizzying highs of young love and physical passion as well as the crashing comedown of real-world responsibility, with a sharp screenplay by Green and Boone, and performances that never strike a false note.

Presented with a Q&A from Director Rashaad Ernesto Green & Writer / Actress Zora Howard Sunday, May 15.
