KEMBA reveals the interior realities of a Black woman living and loving in the aftermath of the War on Drugs. A young college student, Kemba Smith, finds herself under the spell of a dope boy, a romance that ultimately leads to her incarceration. Her life evolves into a battle for redemption, through unwavering faith and boundless determination. Kemba's journey serves as a resounding testament to the transformative power of indomitable will—a triumphant resurrection from the ashes of the carceral system’s inferno. Producer Lana Link and Kemba Smith scheduled to attend November 9 and 11; director Kelley Kali scheduled to attend November 11. Tickets to any screening on November 9 include a 5:00PM Female Filmmakers Happy Hour with complimentary drinks and light bites, hosted by Chaz Ebert.
