BETTER THAN I KNOW MYSELF

Semi-Finalist

2017 HBFF Storytelller Competition

Just like Black Girl Magic, there's something to be said for the power of Black women's friendship. Just ask Carmen, Regina and Jewell, protagonists of Better Than I Know Myself, a feature film adaptation of the Essence best-selling novel written by real-life best friends Virginia DeBarry and Donna Grant. Maintaining sisterhood won't be easy, however, for stubbornly self-sufficient Carmen, former child star in search of a new identity, Jewell, or Regina, for whom life is as constant party. Not with all the secrets between them…and the fact that one of them won't survive.
