Directed by Leslie Harris | 1992
With Ariyan A. Johnson, Kevin Thigpen, Ebony Jerido
Shot in 17 days on a shoestring budget, Leslie Harris’ indie cult classic is an electrifying portrait of brash and brilliant Brooklyn teen Chantel, who remains determined to succeed in life even when a personal crisis threatens to derail her dreams. Described by Harris as “a film Hollywood dared not to do,” Just Another Girl on I.R.T. offers something still all too rare on screen: a dynamic depiction of an outspoken, fearless young black woman drawn with real-world complexity.
