Current Project

Third Girl from the Left


Third Girl From The Left is the story of the other side of Hollywood in the Seventies; of what it means to be black, sexy, smart, and full of dreams in a land where 'blaxploitation' is as literal as it sounds. As intense and serious as it is fun and fabulous, Third Girl From The Left is a compelling saga of love, family secrets, and the ambitions of mothers and daughters.
