BAIL - narative short film

Harlem 1926

When Eli's boyfriend is taken by the cops, the young performer must find a way to make bail.

The six-minute short was adapted from Ben's one act play based on the life of the great unsung Blues pioneer, Gladys Bentley.


The cast was blessed with TV actress T'Keyah Crystal Keymáh - of In Living Color and That's So Raven. Talented up and coming actor Blake Alexander is fantastic in the lead role.


The production was made with a talented crew of fellow USC students including cinematographer Emma Huibregtse and producer Alex Ramsey.
