When: February 18, 2014  7:00 PM

This presentation is to campaign for the production of Tamika R. Guishard’s first feature-length screenplay entitled "D-Day."

Jackie (2011), by Tamika R. Guishard - A friendly dinner takes a wrong turn in the story of an Ivy Leaguer and her birth mother, who find out that their similarities are disturbingly strong and first impressions can never be undone. Looking more like her sister, Jackie soon learns that not only is she the product of a teenage pregnancy, but also that her mother is out for blood...

Filmmaker, Tamika R. Guishard, will join our post-film discussion.

PARKING: Street parking on 11th Street and on adjacent streets. (Be careful not to park @ Residential-Only spots).

Also, there's the Columbia Heights METRO Station on 14th Street.

    Any film regarding Black females and their mothers is of interest to me. Little is said about it but much needs to be explored regarding that often times unfortunate dynamic.

      Agreed. I look forward to your questions at the screening! Regarding this topic, I actually witnessed an unfortunate incident on the bus this morning with a young woman and her mother...yes, this subject matter needs some serious probing. Thank you for your support!
