Brought to you by queer creators of color, Imani Dennison and Robin Williams, the short film «Garden of Eden» makes its Washington, D.C. debut this Fall. After the film, there will be a Q&A with the film's directors.

About the Film
«Garden of Eden» follows Jaliyah (Anyanwu Uwa) as she tries to make sense of her life as a young, newly outed lesbian. Following an altercation with her father, the 17-year old is forced into homelessness just neighborhoods away. As Jaliyah’s identity evolves, a friendship with an unlikely sidekick grows, along with her disdain for religion, society and cultural norms.


The film is being screened in collaboration with ZAMI an ongoing “Gender and Sexualities Series,” at Busboys and Poets and Makers Lab.

*The screening is at the Busboys & Poets 14th and V location.
