Estimated run time: 45 mins.
Directed By: Chanelle Aponte Pearson

195 LEWIS (plays w/short film TOUGH and PUSSY)

Expected Guest: Writer, Producer, Co-Star Rae Leone Allen

 

2017 / USA / Narrative Web Series, S1

Yuri is a painter in a polyamorous relationship trying to navigate her impassioned lifestyle. Ann is trying to get her “music career” off the ground while avoiding the college classes she should be attending. Chris has fled Alabama for New York hoping to reconnect with old friends. These, and other, queer women of color in 195 LEWIS embody contemporary creative life; holed up in Brooklyn apartments trying to find themselves- individually and as a community. The series harkens back to early independent cinema (think Spike Lee) with a clear yet gritty vision and easy longing that speaks to a new generation working through its own unique set of identity issues. Even though the lives of these women are each their own, 195 LEWIS will appeal to anyone striving towards connection while also searching for artistic and career fulfillment.
