Here’s a clip from director Rashaad Ernesto Green‘s Premature, which premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. Executive produced by Susan Kelechi Watson, the film stars Zora Howard and Joshua Boone.
Ayanna is making the most out of her last summer in Harlem before heading to college. She’s bold, confident, and not really looking for love—until she meets the slightly older Isaiah. After one of those rare first dates that lasts for hours, she knows there’s something different about him. Ayanna has found herself at an intimidating crossroads: one foot is still under her mother’s roof, while the the other is primed to step out on her own with Isaiah.
Also featured in the film are Michelle Wilson, Alexis Marie Wint, Imani Lewis, and Tashiana Washington.
Green’s first feature, Gun Hill Road, premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and received nationwide distribution. In his work, Rashaad encourages people to have an active emotional experience by telling stories that are deeply rooted within the universal human experience. His films have screened on Netflix, on HBO, and at festivals internationally. He’s been supported by Cinereach, Sundance Institute, Tribeca Film Institute, IFP, HBO, NBC, Time Warner, and Warner Bros.
