A narrative film by Nefertite Nguvu, In The Morning, is produced by Arthur Jafa, who will also serve as the Director of Photography. Jafa is known best for his cinematography work in Julie Dash's critically acclaimed Daughters of the Dust and Spike Lee's Crooklyn.

Through Kickstarter, the project has raised $10,152 out of the $25,000 goal. The campaign has 17 days to go. Click HERE for more information and to support by contributing.

In The Morning revolves around the love dynamics of several relationships over the course of one day. Here's the full story and watch the preview below:

In The Morning is about love and its inevitable change/decline. It charts the emotional anatomy of several relationships over the course of one day. Permutations of passion, sorrow, joy and brutal honesty fuel the lives of a group of inter-connected New Yorkers. Friends: Harper, Ravi, Fez, Bly and Amara, gather to bid farewell to one of their own moving abroad, and debate the compromise and loss of their youthful ideals about marriage, fidelity, life and love. Two lovers: Malik and Cadence, meet to ceremoniously end a whirlwind romance that has collapsed under the weight of fears, obligations and regrets. A couple: Zuri and Leal, sift through the remains of their broken relationship as they try to make a life altering decision, journeying through the bitter heartbreak that comes with faded love, disintegrated trust, and dreams abandoned. For everyone, life will be indelibly altered in the morning.

Simply stated, In The Morning is about love and transitions. It examines the complexities of love from the perspective of three women in the midst of some hard won self-transformation. It’s a mood piece that weaves together three stories about personal growth and the power of choice and action.

Watch the campaign preview below. I have to say, I totally agree with her sentiments, expecially about love in your thirties vs your twenties. :)
