During the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, Blackfilm.com sat down to interview the cast and crew of to writer-director Qasim Basir‘s indie romance drama A Boy. A Girl. A Dream.
Co-written by Samantha Tanner and starring Omari Hardwick and Meagan Good, the film had its World Premiere at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival on January 22.
The story follows Cass (Hardwick), a handsome USC grad stalled in his career, is getting lost in the alcohol- and drug-infused world of LA club promotion. On the night of the 2016 Presidential Election he meets a woman named Frida (Good), a beautiful, spirited midwestern visitor dealing with a difficult breakup. She challenges him to revisit his broken dreams. Their chemistry is undeniable. Nothing will ever be the same again after Trump is surging ahead of Hilary Clinton.
