So one of my lovely followers and first-time film maker, shebethais, has created her first film! The film is titled “Late Expectations” and this trailer displays a riveting storyline between friendships, family, and love. Here is a short summary of the movie and what it entails
India (played by shebethais) is a high school senior living in Brooklyn. She’s gotten a full scholarship to Brown University and is a model student, good daughter, fun best friend and loving girlfriend. On the outside, she seems to be living the teenage dream. However, it is all a lie. Internally, she is tormented, and hides a secret that threatens to end her most important relationships. She finally gains the courage to reveal her double life but discovers something that shatters her world completely.
This film features a beautiful cast of brown and black youth, exploring love and sexuality. This film has so much potential, but post-production funds are needed to finalize it. Followers, please donate whatever you can to this project. Donations will go towards post-production (which include digitizing, editing, sound mixing, etc.) There is a desperate need for films like this to be seen for both brown and black youth because representation matters. But it all depends on us and our donations!
If you can’t donate, it’s okay! All I ask is that you take the time to watch this trailer and reblog it. For more information on this film, head over to this website and learn more about the team as well as behind-the-scenes photos of the film’s crew.
Please share this everywhere, folks!
Remember when Breaking Bad ended their season with a slow zoom into a potted plant and it was simultaneously the most revelatory and upsetting thing that’s ever happened?

One of the first things people usually ask me is, “Gabourey, how are you so confident?” I hate that. I always wonder if that’s the first thing they ask Rihanna when they meet her. “RiRi! How are you so confident?” Nope. No. No. But me? They ask me with that same incredulous disbelief every single time. “You seem so confident! How is that?” (…) If I hadn’t been told I was garbage, I wouldn’t have learned how to show people I’m talented. And if everyone had always laughed at my jokes, I wouldn’t have figured out how to be so funny. If they hadn’t told me I was ugly, I never would have searched for my beauty. And if they hadn’t tried to break me down, I wouldn’t know that I’m unbreakable. So when you ask me how I’m so confident, I know what you’re really asking me: how could someone like me be confident? Go ask Rihanna, asshole! - Gabourey Sidibe
