In a recent e-mail received, I am delighted to share with FG2BH readers about Ebbe Bassey's current film project -wait for it- "African Booty Scratcher".
Here's the rundown according to HBO.COM:
A young woman must balance her West African traditions with American idealism when it comes to choosing a prom dress in this short film. Directed by Nikyatu Jusu.
Sierra Leonean Jusu started promoting this piece back in Spring 2007 and soon after was recognized at American Black Film Festival.
Just in case you miss the Monday February 4th premiere, HBO ON Demand has this film from Feb. 04, 2008 - Mar. 02, 2008.
"African Booty Scracther" has a myspace page filled with additonal screenings at Los Angeles and Atlanta.
In the meantime, here's the trailer:
Be sure to visit HBO.COM for the time.
