Middle of Nowhere

A young woman brings anguish to herself and those around her through her blind devotion to her imprisoned husband, until a chance encounter leads her to reclaim the life she had almost given away. Writer-director Ava DuVernay won the Best Director prize at Sundance for her elegant, emotionally complex second feature.

Noted film scholar and L.A. Rebellion co-curator Jacqueline Stewart offers an introductory talk on the L.A. Rebellion restoration project prior to the screening of our second shorts programme.

“My brother’s wedding”: Pierce Mundy works at his parents’ South Central dry cleaners with no prospects for the future and his childhood buddies in prison or dead. With his best friend just getting out of jail and his brother busy planning a wedding to a snooty upper-middle-class black woman, Pierce navigates his conflicting obligations while trying to figure out what he really wants in life.

My Brother’s Wedding is a tragic comedy that takes place in South Central Los Angeles. The story focuses on a young man who hasn’t made much of his life as of yet, and at a crucial point in his life, he is unable to make the proper decision, a sober decision, a moral decision. This is a consequence of his not having developed beyond the embryonic stage, socially. He has a distinct romantic notion about life in the ghetto and yet, in spite of his naive sensitivity, he is given the task of being his brother’s keeper; he feels rather than sees, and as a consequence his capacity for judging things off in the distance is limited. This brings about circumstances that weave themselves into a set of complexities which Pierce Mundy (Everett Silas), the main character, desperately tries to avoid. – Charles Burnett..
