"A group of talented girls want to showcase cursive letter-writing. Indeed this is something that is getting lost. Cursive writing shows dedication and it can enhance creativity and dreams. Such is what I perceived after watching A Sisterhood of Signatures.
Educator and filmmaker, Okema "Seven" Gunn (Illinois, USA) delivered a true cultural treasure in just under 20 minutes. One of the first eye-catching pieces of cleverness is to have built this short with a young generation cast at the core of it all. These days many misconceptions lead many to believe millennials do nothing but spending their time on screens. There is hope and talent to cultivate, and this production proves it.
Great work, Maya Hooks, on a great lead role performance. Supporting role wise, Cynda Williams (known for Mo' Betta Blues, One False Move) made a great impression. A well collected production, with tasteful sound mixing/editing.
I enjoyed the flashback moments, the scene variety such as the rules of the club; but more than anything, the dreams that stem from creative writing.
Cursive writing does not need to remain old-fashioned. It can come back. Would be neat to see a series on this with the same characters.
