Sophia Nahli Allison’s short film A Love Song For Latasha is set to debut on the streaming giant on September 21. The 20-minute short film will help to flesh out Netflix’s already solid library of short-form content, which has been an intriguing place lately thanks in large part to Homemade, a collection of shorts all made under lockdown conditions. To whet appetites for then, Netflix has released a teaser trailer for the short film, alongside some key art and stills, all of which are available below:

The injustice surrounding the shooting death of 15-year-old Latasha Harlins at a South Central Los Angeles store became a flashpoint for the city’s 1992 civil uprising. As the Black community expressed its profound pain in the streets, Latasha’s friends and family privately mourned the loss of a vibrant child whose full story was never in the headlines. Nearly three decades later, director Sophia Nahli Allison’s A LOVE SONG FOR LATASHA removes Latasha from the context of her death and rebuilds an archive of a promising life lost. Oral history and memories from Latasha’s best friend and cousin converge in a dreamlike portrait that shows the impact one brief but brilliant life can have.
