Brittani’s Team Pick:
Yesterday a trailer for an indie satire was released and caused quite a stir. I feel like it’s one of those things where it was either all over your social network feeds or you weren’t at all aware of its existence. Being a black Ivy League grad, naturally this film about four black students at a fictitious Ivy League school was everywhere I looked. Rather than go the traditional movie making route, which probably would have gotten nowhere since it’s a movie about black people that isn’t by Tyler Perry, the producers of Dear White People released a trailer to raise money for pre-production and hope to entice enough investors to get the film into theaters. I have a lot of feelings about the feelings I felt watching this trailer. Check it out below and if you are as excited about this film as all my bougie black friends, throw a couple dollars at their Indiegogo.
