Just Another Girl on the I.R.T.

Part of Modern Cinema: Black Powers

Saturday, July 21, 2018

4 p.m.

Introduced by the film’s director, Leslie Harris

“Chantel is a seventeen-year-old Brooklynite who is
beautiful, smart, popular, and absolutely full of attitude. Like most girls her
age, she wants it all and is determined to get it…Midway through the film,
her joy ride takes a turn for what appears to be the worse, but she reacts to a
life-changing event not with introspection and remorse, but with denial,
narcissism, and renewed, well, attitude.”

— Sundance Institute
