Just Another Girl on the I.R.T.

1992 / 92min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: LESLIE HARRIS

Ambitious working-class Brooklyn high schooler Chantel (Ariyan A. Johnson) has her sights set on getting out of the projects and becoming a doctor, and she has the grades to do it—so when an unplanned pregnancy threatens to dim her bright future, her responses run the gamut from anger to outright denial. Harris’s first and, alas, only feature to-date, is as vibrant as when it first appeared to acclaim, its intimate depiction of the experiences of a young Black woman not much more common now than they were then.

Presented with a Q&A with Director Leslie Harris Friday, May 20.
