Watch Teaser For Barry Jenkins’ “Chlorophyl” Commissioned By Miami Arts Collective BORSCHT

We recently featured his ITVS Futurestates short film, Remigration, which received mucho acclaim; what I didn’t know was that Mr Barry Jenkins was working on another short film, which he tells me he shot the weekend before the South By Southwest Film Festival, late February, early March.

This one was commissioned by the BORSCHT Film Festival in Miami, FL, which commissions and showcases films by emerging artists “that tell Miami stories that go beyond the typical portrayal of a beautiful but vapid party town.

Barry was born and raised in Miami’s Liberty City, by the way.

Barry’s BORSCHT short is called Chlorophyl, and it’s one of 6 commissioned films by the festival, and will screen there on April 23rd, next Saturday.

The film is said to be inspired by Miami musician Millionyoung, and “follows a listless girl as she struggles with unrequited love, moving to the music of the city and set against some of Miami’s hidden architectural gems.”

Past BORSCHT-commissioned films have gone on to screen at international film festivals and venues, including Cannes, Tribeca, Sundance, and the Guggenheim Museums.

So I’m sure Chlorophyl will travel… in the meantime, watch the teaser trailer below; and if you’ll be in the Miami area next weekend, check out Barry’s film and the festival:
