Brooklyn’s Bridge to Jordan by Tina Mabry: After losing her life partner in a car accident, a woman with a buried secret must not only fight to keep the couples’ estranged teenage son from her partner’s intolerant brother, but rebuild her and the son’s troubled relationship.


Crossover by Tina Mabry: In a future where schools are segregated by economic status, a struggling mother must decide whether to sell her own organs to give her children a better education.


*Sistah Sinema was created to showcase the nuances of Queer Women of Color culture. It is hoped that the movies will serve as a vehicle to foster honest dialogue on struggles and opportunities unique to Queer Women of Color. While discussion will focus on Queer Women of Color, all members of the Queer community are invited to attend.

Sistah Sinema started in Seattle, WA in early 2011 and expanded to Cleveland in 2012, and currently in over 10 cities across the country and Kingston, JA.
