So one of my lovely followers and first-time film maker, shebethais, has created her first film! The film is titled “Late Expectations” and this trailer displays a riveting storyline between friendships, family, and love. Here is a short summary of the movie and what it entails
India (played by shebethais) is a high school senior living in Brooklyn. She’s gotten a full scholarship to Brown University and is a model student, good daughter, fun best friend and loving girlfriend. On the outside, she seems to be living the teenage dream. However, it is all a lie. Internally, she is tormented, and hides a secret that threatens to end her most important relationships. She finally gains the courage to reveal her double life but discovers something that shatters her world completely.
This film features a beautiful cast of brown and black youth, exploring love and sexuality. This film has so much potential, but post-production funds are needed to finalize it. Followers, please donate whatever you can to this project. Donations will go towards post-production (which include digitizing, editing, sound mixing, etc.) There is a desperate need for films like this to be seen for both brown and black youth because representation matters. But it all depends on us and our donations!
If you can’t donate, it’s okay! All I ask is that you take the time to watch this trailer and reblog it. For more information on this film, head over to this website and learn more about the team as well as behind-the-scenes photos of the film’s crew.
Please share this everywhere, folks!
