Yesterday, Datari Turner Productions premiered its sixth film at Sundance: A Boy. A Girl. A Dream: Love On Election Night. Attending from the film were stars Omari Hardwick, Meagan Good, Jay Ellis, and Dijon Talton; director Qasim Basir; writer Samantha Turner and producer Datari Turner. The film debuted in the NEXT category, a class of films at the festival that take an “innovative, forward-thinking approach to storytelling.” The sold-out screening at Park City Library earned a standing ovation and plenty of buzz, capping off a whirlwind weekend of various press interviews, photo shoots and events.
A Boy. A Girl. A Dream is set on the night of the 2016 Presidential election, when “Cass” (Hardwick), an L.A. club promoter, takes a thrilling and emotional journey with “Free” (Good), a Midwestern visitor. She challenges him to revisit his broken dreams – while he pushes her to discover hers.
A Boy. A Girl. A Dream is written by Qasim Basir and Samantha Turner and produced by Datari Turner. Executive producers are Meagan Good, Omari Hardwick, Jash’d Kambui Belcher, Jamal Chilton, Tim Weatherspoon, Louis Steyn, TJ Steyn, and Phil Thornton.
