Movie Opening Friday November 5th, an Official Selection at the 2008
Sundance and AFI Film Festivals, A GOOD DAY TO BE BLACK AND SEXY picks up where Spike Lee’s “She’s Gotta Have It” left off. From the opening sequence, the needle drops on this collection of six vignettes spinning the sexual politics and intimacies between black men and women, played out in bedrooms, couches, and the back seats of cars. Captured with raw unflinching eye, these gritty snapshots of urban pillow talk offer a rare, voyeuristic glimpse of black love and sexuality that does not exist in American films today.
Directed by Dennis Dortch (Honey), A GOOD DAY to be BLACK and SEXY is comprised of several chapters of deftly arranged vignettes on black love, sex and reciprocity. The interconnected stories unfold over a single day in Los Angeles. Each themed story is irreverent and unconventional, with sensual chapters entitled: “Reciprocity,” “Reprise,” “American Boyfriend,” “Her Man,” and “Tonight.”
The film is daring in its choices, carefully depicting intimacy in black relationships and exploring new ground in storytelling.
