Watch 2 Reader-Submitted Short Films To Start Your Work Week...


The first is a "dance film" from producer, writer, director Jamila Glass, (a filmmaker – USC grad – and a professional dancer herself), titled Love On A Sunday Afternoon.

Its synopsis reads:

This short film shares a day in the life of a young couple who experience the power and beauty of love between each other and among friends.

Jamila says that her goal in making the film was to "expand the view of Black dancers beyond our narrow portrayal in popular media;" it features Janelle Monae's Say You'll Go.

And the second is from Detdrich McClure, titled Jordan's Walk – a post-Civil War drama, set in 1865, which, as the synopsis states…

… chronicles the journey of Jordan (Asante Jones) on the heels of the Civil War as he embarks on a long walk and encounters various people along the way.

So it's a "road movie" of sorts.

Watch both short films below:
