Keep an eye on Brown Girls, a web series by Fatimah Asghar & Sam Bailey
Ashley Ray-Harris recently posted an interesting article about Brown Girls on autostraddle. After seeing the trailer, I think its fair to say that this authentic work made by Fatimah Asghar (writter) & Sam Bailey (director) might have a significant echo in 2017. An important point to note: the project is backed by Open TV, an independant platform dedicated to artists who identify as queer, trans, cis-women and artists of color. Perhaps you remember that we’ve already mentioned this space after the release of Full Out, a web series set in the world of classical dance. Brown Girls “follows Leila, a South Asian-American writer just now owning her queerness, and her best friend Patricia, a sex-positive Black-American musician who is struggling to commit to anything: job, art and relationships. While the two women come from completely different backgrounds, their friendship is ultimately what they lean on to get through the messiness of their mid-twenties.” Leila and Patricia are portrayed by Nabila Hossain and Sonia Denis, you can find the full cast here, subscribe to their newsletter or explore the synopisis in more detail.
