Bronx Gothic

Bronx Gothic Release Date: July 12, 2017

Bronx Gothic, from director Andrew Rossi (Page One: Inside the New York Times, The First Monday in May), is an electrifying portrait of writer and performer Okwui Okpokwasili and her one-woman show, Bronx Gothic. Rooted in memories of her childhood, Okwui – who’s worked with conceptual artists like Ralph Lemon and Julie Taymor – fuses dance, song, drama and comedy to create a mesmerizing space in which audiences can engage with a story about two 12-year-old black girls coming of age in the 1980s. With intimate vérité access to Okwui and her audiences off the stage, Bronx Gothic allows for unparalleled insight into her creative process as well as the complex social issues embodied in it.

Bronx Gothic is proof that fools (producers) are easily parted with their money, as this movie won’t even make $5,000 at the box office.
