From first-time feature filmmaker Dui Jarrod comes Lesson Before Love, the story of “four unfulfilled singles’ journey towards love, while trying to find themselves along the way.”

The film will premiere at Long Island University in Brooklyn next Friday, July 29th as part of the Independent Film New York Premiere Screening Series. A Q&A with Jarrod will follow.

Jarrod, who counts himself a fan of films like Love Jones and The Best Man, hopes his film will tell the story of progressive, black professionals, “a group who rarely gets stories told from our perspective.”

See the trailer for the film below:
