Sankofa Film Society presents ARRAY's latest release, JEZEBEL
Sankofa presents ARRAY's latest release "JEZEBEL" based on the real life experiences of director Numa Perrier. Join us for Q & A after the film with Ms. Briq House, Seattle's legendary artist, sex worker and intimacy coach.
"With her feature film debut, Numa Perrier presents Jezebel, a strikingly beautiful coming-of-age exploration serving as a love story to the free agency of a black girls sexuality. Written and directed by Perrier, Jezebel also introduces us to the talents of the sublime Tiffany Tenille, a young tour-de-force to watch. In her vulnerably seductive portrayal of Tiffany/Jezebel, a star is not only born; she has risen." The Root
In the last days of her mothers life, 19 year old Tiffany crashes with five family members in a Las Vegas studio apartment. In order to make ends meet, her older sister, a phone sex operator, introduces her to the world of internet fetish cam girls. Tiffany becomes popular as the only live black model at the new adult site and soon becomes too close to one of her frequent callers. Dynamics shift in the sister relationship as each woman explores and exploits their sexuality, using their created fantasy worlds as an escape from the realities of their challenging real life circumstances. This bizarre coming of age story depicts sisterhood in a most unusual way.
