For everyone, life will be indelibly altered in the morning.

According to the director of upcoming featured film In The Morning,  Nefertite Nguvu, the aforementioned statement is inescapable reality, especially when it comes to love.

In The Morning, which is set to debut September 20th at this years Urban World Film Festival, takes us on a RAW + REAL journey of the up’s and down’s of romantic love.  

Nefertite Nguvu Examines The Complexities of Love In Her New Film "In The Morning"

As a filmmaker, and as a lover of films, I’ve always been attracted to intimate stories, films with an incredibly rich emotional life. I’m infinitely fascinated by the landscape of the human heart, and mind. I seek to create, and long to see films with complex, layered characters that take me on journeys. In The Morning is about something universal, something we’ve all wrestled with, sometimes won and sometimes lost, this terrible/beautiful animal: love. It explores the ever-changing nature of romantic love, but it’s ultimately about the profound power of self-love, self-actualization. My hope is that In The Morning will spark conversations about those beautiful moments in our lives and loves where we are required to be brave.

Take a few moments and check out the trailer:


“In The Morning” is a feature film about love and its inevitable change/decline. It charts the emotional anatomy of the lives, loves, infidelities, and enduring friendships of a group of inter-connected New Yorkers over the course of one day.

Photographed by award winning cinematographer Arthur Jafa (‘Daughters Of The Dust,’ ‘Crooklyn’ and colored by Malik Sayeed (“Belly”). The film is an intrinsically New York story, a sophisticated adult drama, with both humor and intensity reminiscent of early Spike Lee and Woody Allen films, yet marks the arrival of a bold new voice in filmmaking.

Set in Brooklyn, In The Morning is a searing journey through the lives of nine smart, fiercely articulate New Yorkers.

Friends: Harper, Ravi, Fez, Bly and Amara gather to bid farewell to one of their own moving abroad, and debate the compromise and loss of their youthful ideals regarding marriage, fidelity, life and love.

Two lovers: Malik and Cadence, meet to ceremoniously end a whirlwind romance that has collapsed under the weight of fears, obligations and regrets.

A couple: Zuri and Leal, sift through the remains of their broken relationship as they try to make a life altering decision. They begin to come to terms with their disintegrated trust, and the possibility of renewal.

“In the Morning” debut’s with an amazing cast of emerging talent:  Jacky Ido (Star of current NBC series ‘Taxi Brooklyn’) Emayatzy Corinealdi (Star of Sundance award winner ‘Middle of Nowhere,’ and Don Cheadle’s upcoming Miles Davis biopic), Numa Perrier (Star of popular web series ’The Couple’ currently under television development by HBO), Kim Hill (soul singer, original lead singer of The Black Eyed Peas), De’adre Aziza (Tony Nominated Broadway actor ‘Passing Strange’) Hoji Fortuna (‘Viva Riva’) JoNell Kennedy (‘Me And You And Everyone We Know’) and making film debuts Alzo Slade and CJ Lindsey.
