#BLACKGIRLMAGIC: BLACK WOMEN MAKING MOVIES - BLACKSTORY FILMS: DIDN'T I ASK For TEA???

didn't i ask for tea?
BRANDI is a 32-year-old BLAC K WOMAN living in NEW YORK CITY who suddenly finds herself in the midst of a whirlwind of sudden change!!!

She is having to find decent, affordable housing by herself because of having to move out of the apartment that she has been sharing with her roommate, MIA, who will be moving in with her boyfriend, and; she has not been in a relationship for at least two years, but; now finds herself attracted to a young man named ERIC.

Such is the premise of independent film, DIDN'T I ASK For TEA???, the first theatrical release from brand-spankin' new production company, BLACKSTORY FILMS.

DIDN'T I ASK For TEA??? is a dialogue-on-relationships-driven film that was screened at the Brooklyn Museum, Pan African Film Festival, Black Star Film Festival, Roxbury International Film Festival, Black Harvest Film Festival, Greater Cleveland Urban Film Festival, Rwanda International Film Festival, Paris Black Movie Summer Festival, Reel Sisters Film Festival, and the Los Angeles Black Film Festival.
DIDN'T I ASK For TEA??? comes to us from two longtime friends, former MADAMENOIRE Editor RAHWA ASMEROM and ESSENCE WARD.
It is the first production from BLACKSTORY FILMS and the writing and directorial debut for both Asmerom and Ward. 
The BLACKSTORY  in this film was “to create a work driven by intelligent and sharp dialogue, but also a work that reflected unconventional ideas about black culture.”
According to a press release:
“Didn’t I Ask For Tea?” features emerging actress Trae Harris, who made a stunning turn as “Nina” in the indy hit film “Newlyweeds.” The eight-person cast also features Keona Welch, Tre Davis, Roger Baptiste, LaTonia Phipps, Monique Lola Berkley, Shaquille Berry and Aden Fisseha. Along with Asmerom and Ward, the film was produced by NY-based producer/director Jeremy Batchelor.
blackSTORY films will continue to focus on dialogue-driven, women-led productions.  Upcoming works include the web series “Conversating While Black” featuring MaameYaa Boafo (An African City) and Andrea Lewis (Black Actress), set for release in March 2016, and a feature film “Maya vs. Settling,” due out in 2017.
