Storyline

A Love Song For Latasha is a dreamlike hybrid documentary in conversation with the past and the present to reimagine a more nuanced narrative of Latasha Harlins than standard archival practises have captured by excavating intimate and poetic memories shared by her cousin and best friend.

Safety Pin
22 September 2020 | by faer_krSee all my reviews

A mini-documentary. It is about the murder of a teenage girl in the 90's and the feelings of her acquaintances. Piercing. Raw. Quality. The narrations and the recreation of her voice are exemplary. Animations and skits are fine. Seek justice and promptly expose the harassment experienced by people of color in certain neighborhoods in the United States. In 20 minutes it leaves you with a sour taste. In the end it could be you or I who tragically loses my life while going to the store. It is a documentary made with love that reclaims the life of a black girl. Safety pin.
