  • Film: In The Morning

    Friday, May 26, 2017

    7:00 PM-9:00 PM

    Screening Room URBN Center Annex | 3401 Filbert Street Philadelphia

    • Everyone

    Nefertite Nguvu and BlackStar to host a screening of the award-winning film  In The Morning at the Leonard Pearlstein Gallery. The debut feature narrative, written and directed by Nguvu, charts the emotional anatomy of the lives, loves, infidelities, and enduring friendships of a group of interconnected New Yorkers over the course of one day.

    Independently funded and shot in just eight days in Brooklyn, NY, the film delves into the emotional landscape of contemporary black life in a way rarely seen in modern cinema. “In the Morning” is a sophisticated adult drama, with both humor and intensity reminiscent of early Spike Lee and Woody Allen films, yet marks the arrival of a bold new voice in filmmaking.

    Photographed by award-winning cinematographer Arthur Jafa (“Daughters of the Dust,” “Crooklyn”), and color-timed by Malik Sayeed (“Belly”), the film’s ensemble cast includes: Jacky Ido, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Numa Perrier, Kim Hill, De’adre Aziza, Hoji Fortuna, JoNell Kennedy and making debut’s Alzo Slade and CJ Lindsey.

    “In the Morning” will also be available worldwide via Video On Demand on Amazon, Vimeo on Demand, Xfinity Streampix and VHX starting April 20.

    Premiering at the 2014 UrbanWorld Film Festival, “In the Morning” won the Audience Award for Best Feature Film at UrbanWorld, Best International Film at the Terra Di Siena Film Festival in Italy, Best Narrative Feature at the BlackStar Film Festival in Philadelphia, and Best Feature Film and Best Overall at the Bronzelens Film Festival in Atlanta.
