EXCLUSIVE: In a new clip from the Rashaad Ernest Green-directed film Premature, we are thrown into a heated debate about gender semantics and the treatment of Black men and Black men.
The film, which is co-written by Green and star Zora Howard, follows Ayana (Howard), who 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. Ayana has found herself at an intimidating crossroads: one foot is still under her mother’s roof, while the other is primed to step out on her own with Isaiah.
The film also stars Joshua Boone, Michelle Wilson, Alexis Marie Wint, Imani Lewis, and Tashiana Washington. Premature screens under Sundance’s NEXT banner and will make its world premiere tonight at the Egyptian Theater in Park City.
