Remember when Black movies didn't neccesarily star a dude in a fat suit and a wig? Or have major plot twists timed to Gospel numbers for no apparent reason?
The humble producers of DEAR WHITE PEOPLE, a satire about being a black face in a white place, long to bring those days back.
The film follows four black students at a predominately white Ivy League where a popular "African American themed" party takes place. Through their unique perspectives the film tackles race identity in "post-racial" America while weaving a universal story of forging one's unique path in the world.
Bread and Butter is a story about Amelia (30), an endearing misfit and virgin, who starts to be pursued by two men at the same time. One man is trying desperately to keep control of his life while the other embraces Crazy.
In the midst of all the romantic confusion, Amelia has to deal with her eccentric boss, a life coach named Dr. Wellburn, and her overbearing parents.
Bread and Butter aims to be a character study of one neurotic, sexually inexperienced girl, Amelia (30) being thrown into the gauntlet of romantic pursuit.
