LOVED IT! #STEPTHEMOVIE A MUST SEE!

step

So,  yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the premiere of a very special movie. Directed by Amanda Lipitz, the movie, featuring Blessin Giraldo, Cori Grainger, Tayla Solomon, Gari McIntyre, and Paula Dofat is more like a documentary which documents the senior year of a girls’ high school step team in inner-city Baltimore, as they try to become the first in their families to attend college. The girls strive to make their dancing a success against the backdrop of social unrest.

The cast was present at the premiere and there was a question and answer session. This is all apart of the American Black Film festival which is being held in Miami June 14 – June 18.

Okay, back to the movie! I must say I left the the Miami Beach Cinematheque inspired, the movie takes you through a gamut of emotions and honestly I saw myself in each of the girls. I could even relate to the each of the Mother’s struggles. I am a single Mother raising children and I’ve been in situations that mirror the women in this movies lives so much so that I left the theater feeling inspired to keep going.

Some how this movie spoke to me and let me know that my struggles as a Woman, Mother, Friend, Daughter & Companion were not just exclusively my own but that we all struggle and though we may struggle our situations are not impossible to overcome.

Go see this movie! STEP will be in theaters August 4, 2017
