COMING OF AGE FILMS FEATURING BLACK GIRLS: YELLING TO THE SKY(2011, directed by Victoria Mahoney)
Yelling to the Sky was the 3rd coming of age film i had ever seen about a black girl, going through struggles that a lot of black girls are going through right now but are hardly talked about or showcased in mainstream media, and it poured a fuel over the intense passion i have for coming of age films about black girls and made that passion even bigger. Zoe Krazitz plays Sweetness O’hara, a 17y/o girl in high school suffering through bullying from her peers, a broken family, and having to deal with the fact that her life might be at a dead end if she doesn’t find a way out immediately. Also features other amazing black actresses like Gabourey Sidibe and Antonique Smith, making it perhaps one of the top ten best films i’ve ever watched.
it’s so good
