#Sundance2019: Rashaad Ernesto Green's PREMATURE

Jesus Figueroa

Ayana is making the most out of her last summer in Harlem before heading to college.

She’s bold, confident, and not really looking for love—until she meets the slightly older Isaiah.

After one of those rare first dates that lasts for hours, she knows there’s something different about him.

Ayana has found herself at an intimidating crossroads: one foot is still under her mother’s roof, while the the other is primed to step out on her own with Isaiah.

Rashaad Ernesto Green captures youthful, uninhibited conviction through Ayana’s world in flux: transitional outbursts at home with her mother, deep and sensuous encounters of intimacy with Isaiah, and moments of unfiltered honesty with her girlfriends.

Writer and breakout-lead Zora Howard brings complexity to Ayana, a young woman balancing vulnerability and self-sufficiency.

The result is an outspoken portrait of a young woman in transition, anchored by the relationships that shape us, the friendships that bolster and push us, and the love that has the power to change everything.
