Join T A P E for an exclusive viewing of the award-winning 90’s classic Just Another Girl on the I.R.T. followed by an interactive conversation.

The first and only feature film by the talented Leslie Harris, Just Another Girl on the I.R.T won the Sundance Special Jury Prize when first released in 1992. The film: sighted as an inspiration for many films about and directed by Black women, it’s a trailblazing piece of work which over 30 years after its release remains immensely enjoyable and relevant beyond its label of a coming-of-age drama.

Brash, smart, and intensely practical, Chantel is a high-school junior in a hurry to graduate to prove she is more than the labels her race, gender, and class so often assume of her. Harris’s film evokes the myriad complexities of teenage life, spotlighting a society in which young Black women are so rarely the protagonists in their own stories. Here, she not only gives a girl that chance but defies the narrative.

After the film, T A P E will host an interactive conversation with the audience, as we delve into the ethical questions that the film raises.
