UNA GREAT MOVIE
Directed by: Jennifer Sharp
Writer: Jennifer Sharp
Produced by: Jennifer Sharp
Cast: JoNell Kennedy, Numa Perrier, Jake Olson
Part quirky, cerebral take on Hollywoods commercialism and greed, part heart-warming tale that challenges stereotypes, Una Great Movie begins by following a black American woman traveling to Mexico, only to turn into a romantic comedy with an all-white cast.
Susan is a black American woman travelling to Mexico to rekindle a romance with her former lover. Or is she? As a screenwriter struggles to tell the story she has dreamed of writing all her life, she is faced with pushback from the gatekeepers of the film industry who insist on white-washing the cast and treating the people of color as one-dimensional stereotypes. Funny, full of heart, and thoroughly entertaining Una Great Movie incorporates a professional cast mixed with local Mexican non-actors while introducing refreshing new perspectives that challenge common stereotypes and portraying a universal humanity rather than categories of difference.
