Film. Support it. ‘Fried Ice Cream.’ The Offbeat Coming-of-Age Story Starring Two Young Black Women That Opens With a ‘F*ck You’ to Sallie Mae.
The all-woman, African-American indie art film house, House of June is making it’s first full-length film, Fried Ice Cream. The offbeat coming of age tale tells the story of two young women trying to earn some extra cash over the summer.
Here’s a brief Synopsis.
“FRIED ICE CREAM follows AKEEBAH & SLOAN, two mix-matched peas in a pod living and finding themselves in the summer solstice of inner-city Atlanta. Faced with ultimatums by their parental figures and Sallie Mae to work summer jobs to afford their last semester in college, they arbitrarily become ice-cream truck drivers in West End Atlanta. Quirky adventures ensue when their entrepreneurial spirits become hallucinogenic.
Colorful, whimsical, and dark, the film will nostalgically explore the turbulence and beauty of maturing in a neighborhood filled with the ups and downs.”
