As we promised... here is the online premiere of writer/director/actor Ka'ramuu Kush's short film And Then..., winner of the 3rd Shadow And Act Black Filmmaker Screenwriting Challenge, which made its World Premiere in both Los Angeles and New York City over a month ago.

Both screenings were very well attended, and we're pleased to say that the film was well received. 

And now, we're hoping that the online premiere is just as "well-attended" and received by you folks... right now!

To quickly recap, And Then... is...

... a "coming of womanhood" story that deals with one woman's confrontation of issues surrounding body image, communication, and the psychology of sex. The film is about the discovery of feminine power and the healing that follows.

It was co-written by Ka'ramuu and Aisha Hinds, and stars Diandra LyleVanessa Williams (Soul Food) and Ka'ramuu himself, with a score by Prince Damons.

Cheryl L. BedfordSean O'Halloran and Kush are all producers on the project.

And if you haven't, read Jai Tiggett's thoughtful interview with writer/director Kush, Aisha Hinds, Diandra Lyle and Vanessa Williams HERE, to get some back story on the making of the film.

Congrats to the cast and crew as the last leg of this filmmaking journey begins, going into the distribution and exhibition phases.

The next S&A Films Black Filmmaker Challenge call for scripts will be announced possibly before the end of this year, although more likely early next year.

For those just joining us, in short, the S&A Films Black Filmmaker Challenge is a contest in which S&A Films (a production company created by Tambay Obenson and Rodney Parnther) fully finances and executive produces a short film by a black filmmaker, based on a script selected from eligible entries. There've been 3 of them thus far (Nikyatu Jusu's Black Swan TheoryRod Gailes' Soft Focus, and now Ka'ramuu Kush's And Then...), with the long-term goal being to eventually start funding feature films.

Now, watch Ka'ramuu Kush's And Then... in its entirety below, which is just over 30 minutes. I should note that it's NSFW:
