Summer is almost here and so is House of June's first feature length film! House of June, the all Black and all female indie art house is coming out with its first feature length film, Fried Ice Cream, which captures the essence of two carefree black girl who set out on an entrepreneurial venture while proclaiming that the summer is theirs.
Here's short synopsis of the project:
FRIED ICECREAM follows AKEEBAH & SLOAN, two mix-matched peas in a pod living and finding self in the summer solstice of inner-city Atlanta. Faced with ultimatums by their parental figures and Sallie Mae to work summer jobs to afford their last semester in college, they arbitrarily become ice-cream truck drivers in West End Atlanta. Quirky adventures ensue when their entrepreneurial spirits become hallucinogenic.
Colorful, whimsical, and dark, the film nostalgically explores the turbulence and beauty of maturing in a neighborhood filled with the ups and downs of inner-city living: where children die in the summer, where busted fire hydrants act as water parks, and the sound of an ice-cream truck is a serenade.
FRIED ICECREAM is a coming-of-age story of young mavericks, encapsulated within a tale of summertime’s vibrant adventures and Catch-22s.
