Director Angel Kristi Williams visits the Parkway to introduce her festival hit, REALLY LOVE, at this one-night only special event screening. Following the film, there will be a conversation with Williams and co-writer, Felicia Pride moderated by renowned cinematographer, Bradford Young.
Set in a gentrified Washington D.C., Isaiah, a figurative painter, is on the brink of giving up when he meets Stevie, an intriguing beauty with big brains.
Isaiah’s creativity flows with Stevie in his life. They fall in love, but his work remains overlooked by collectors and curators, bruising his ego. When Isaiah convinces a prominent gallerist to take a chance on him, he pours himself into his art, but doesn’t leave much room for love. Frustrated Stevie accepts a dream job in Chicago, breaking Isaiah’s heart. A year passes without communication until Isaiah sees Stevie at a group show in Chicago. Isaiah’s career has improved, but his life isn’t what he imagined without her.
REALLY LOVE is a story set within and adorned with contemporary Black art and music. The film features choreography by Alvin Ailey, whose company is dedicated to enriching American modern dance heritage and preserving the uniqueness of the African-American cultural experience. In order to build the character of Isaiah, Williams commissioned original art work by Atlanta-based emerging painter Gerald Lovell. Working with Production Designer, Nathan Parker, she created the many art shows in the film featuring the work of Noah Davis, Ronald Jackson, Meleko Mokgosi, Koshin Finley, Andy Robert, John Simons, Chanel Compton, Asha Elana Casey, Jerrell Gibbs, Jamea Richmonds-Edwards, and Chinedu Felix Osuchukwu. Go-go, D.C.’s homegrown music peppers the movie’s vibrant soundtrack featuring Meshell Ndegeocello, GoldLink, Ari Lennox, Kamasi Washington, Alice Smith, Mulatu Astatke, Jidenna, Khruangbin, Oddisee, Masego, TOB, Sun Ra, April + VISTA, and Laura Nyro alongside an original score by Khari Mateen.
