A Necessary Film To See

Still Here is a must see film. Through an incredible performance from all cast members but specially from Maurice McRae (Michael Watson) the film reaches the darkest corners of racism and abuse, touching subjects such as human trafficking, classism, police abuse and systematic racism. We need more than ever black movies and see black stories. Aside from it's social impact Still Here excels in to telling a compelling story. The film is extremely relevant today.

Wow! Powerful movie with sensitive topics

As protests continue to increase in the USA, this film comes in time to show a black world and open conversations in fight against systematic and institutional racism in America. Acting is powerful, the film fully immerses you and takes you though an emotional roller coaster. 100% recommended!!!! BLACK MOVIES matter
