Female Filmmaker Friday: Something New, 2006 (dir. Sanaa Hamri)


I actually talked a little bit about this film earlier this week on my new video series on YouTube, but I wanted to write about it as well because I fell head over heels for this film. It was written by Kriss Turner and directed by Sanaa Hamri and as far as I can tell, this is both women’s only feature film to date, which is a real shame. This film follows the rom-com structure perfectly, but is also full of wonderfully layered characters and packed with social/racial commentary.

Brian: I want to be there for you, Kenya, I really do. And we can talk. We can talk about whatever you like. I may not always relate, but I can promise I’ll empathize. Can you trust that?
