And Then... 1

The wait is over! 

Ka'ramuu Kush's short film And Then..., winner of the 3rd Shadow And Act Black Filmmaker Challenge, is set to make its World Premiere in both Los Angeles AND New York City, TONIGHT, Wednesday, August 7th, both at 7pm local time (PST and EST).

In LA, the screening, presented by Hollywood Shorts, and hosted by Kimberley Browning, will take place at Dim Mak Studios (formerly CineSpace), 6356 Hollywood BLVD.

In New York, the screening, presented by Creatively Speaking, which is spearheaded by New School faculty member Michelle Materrewill take place at The New School Theresa Lang Student Center, 55 West 13th Street, 2nd floor.

NOTE: Both screenings are FREE!

Full details of each screening can be found on the diptych embedded at the bottom of this post.

Soon after the theatrical premieres, the film will debut online, right here on S&A, for the rest of the world to watch.

To 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.

We look forward to seeing you all at either screening, today, Wednesday, depending in which of the two cities you live.

For those just joining us, in short, the S&A Films Black Filmmaker Challenge is a contest in which S&A Films (a partnership between myself and Rodney Parnther) funds a short film by a black filmmaker, about black people, based on a script selected from eligible entries. There've been 3 of them thus far (Nikyatu Jusu's Black Swan Theory, Rod Gailes' Soft Focus, and now Ka'ramuu Kush's And Then...), with the long-term goal being to eventually start funding feature films.

It's been a slow but steady journey, as we continue to build on what we've learned from past efforts, and shape the challenge accordingly. So those who've been asking me about what comes next, thanks for hanging in there.

Ahead of tonight's bi-coastal premiere of And Then..., here's the film's trailer (you'll find details on both screenings in the images underneath):
