Save Me poster

Those who have been following the Finding the New Black interview series should recall Lena Waithe, the television writer on Nickelodeon's How to Rock who has also written and directed a number of short films and web content.

Lena recently released her short film Save Me after a run on the film festival circuit, and the 13-minute drama is now available on Youtube for all to see.

Save Me stars newcomer Jaheem Toombs in "a fable about wanting a reason to live and cherishing the simple blessing of being alive." It features inventive visuals by DP Matthew Sanders, and was produced by Nikki Love, who you might also recognize as a producer of Matthew Cherry's The Last Fall
