The time has finally come for us to share the fruit of our labor with the world. Through the help of family and friends anxious to see the full length, 90-minute feature onscreen, we have been able to put together a 15 minute short version of the film to help us further this effort. We invite you to come and witness this vision firsthand. There will be a brief Q&A following the screening.
About ZEMIRA: About Co-written and produced by filmmakers Curtis John and Mecca Woods, ZEMIRA (www.zemirathefilm.com) is a film that focuses on a teenage girl's struggle to overcome the challenges of her impoverished, South Bronx life. However, ZEMIRA goes beyond typical urban fare by asking viewers to think critically about the socio-economic status quo that permeates the inner city. Not every young girl of color is destined for failure...right?
