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.

A very personal work, maybe a little too personal.
26 March 2021 | by CubsandCultureSee all my reviews

I ended up watching this because I am working my way through the Oscar nominations. I knew nothing about the subject matter. The 19 minutes pf this work are very lyrical-abstract animation is even used-and the underlying story is one of raw emotional power. The short fulfills its title as it is largely a remembrance about Latasha by her friends and family. No time is spent on the larger context-it is singularly about Latasha in herself. The film is admirable in that regard but I wish there was like a minute of larger context to bookend the core of the short. It feels like a very well done home movie.
