Read the film’s description below as published by Refinery29:
“Inspired by Nina Simone’s ‘Four Women,’ Gabourey Sidibe’s directorial debut is a multi-layered story that spans one day in the life of four different women who are connected through their quest for love, agency and redemption. This 20-minute film interweaves four stories of race-based violence and fatal encounters with the police through a female’s perspective.
As a director, Sidibe touches on the importance of bringing black females on screen, at a poignant time where people are demanding a dialogue on race relations in our country.”
