WIN A COPY OF MEDICINE FOR MELANCHOLY ON DVD
Nominated for three 2008 Independent Spirit Awards, including Best First Feature, filmmaker Barry Jenkins’ award-winning Indie Gem is now available on DVD from MPI Home Video.
Sex, race, bicycles and urban demographics are the diverse elements that come magically together in Medicine For Melancholy, a refreshingly original first feature from writer-director Barry Jenkins.
Wyatt Cenac (of The Daily Show) and Tracey Heggins star in this love story about two African-American twenty-somethings, their one-night stand, and a revealing day-after in rapidly gentrifying San Francisco - a city with the smallest proportional black population of any other major American city. One of the most significant hits of the festival season and remains perhaps the most talked-about independent film of the year it was a smash at South By Southwest, London, Philadelphia, Toronto and Athens. It won two awards at the Sarasota Film Festival and was released theatrically earlier this year by IFC Films.
Medicine For Melancholy is a very special film, beautifully shot and full of truthful moments and honest performances. It is an instant classic.
