Details from the press release follow:
Indie ﬁlmmaker Dui Jarrod's ﬁlm Lesson Before Love will be the opening in four cities as part of SMG With A Twist Alternate Programming at Studio Movie Grill locations.
The ﬁlm will be released exclusively in Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas and Houston early October.
Lesson Before Love is described as:
... the dramatic story of four unfulﬁlled singles’ journey towards love, while trying to ﬁnd themselves along the way.
This is Jarrod's ﬁrst feature film, after producing several short ﬁlms, web series and traveling play productions.
"There’s no greater feeling then seeing all of your hard work come together. It has been so though for our ﬁlm because we did have any stars, I’m thankful Studio Movie Grill supports great stories and believed in us enough to give us a limited release... People tell you all the time, all it takes is one person to believe in you for everything to change. Hopefully this is that moment. Actually, can’t stop smiling just thinking about the possibilities,” said Jarrod.
The film screened at the 2012 Act Now New Voices In Black Cinema here in NYC.
