After appearing at festivals, including winning Best Short at the 2017 Urbanworld Film Festival, Oscar nominated actress Gabourey Sidibe‘s directorial debut, the short film ‘The Tale Of Four’ is now online.

Written by Kia Perry and Ayanna McMichael and produced by Perry, Lisa Cortes and Shannon Gibson, the cast includes Jussie Smollett, Dana Gourrier, Ledisi Young, Aisha Hinds, Phyllis Yvonne Stickney, and Meagan Kimberly Smith.

Inspired by Nina Simone’s song, “Four Women,” this narrative explores the inner lives of Aunt Sarah (Ledisi Young); bound and burdened by duty, Saffronia (Meagan Kimberly Smith); who is searching for identity, Sweet Thing (Dana Gourrier); who looks to reconcile sex with love and Peaches (Aisha Hinds); who seeks justice for her son. Separate stories reflective of multi-faceted African American women connected by the inner city building that they live in, ultimately converge on one fateful day through unheralded acts of bravery.
