The premiere of Sundance Alum Tahir Jetter's new web series, Hard Times, is finally here! (And as amazing as previously promised.) Starring Abraham Amkpa, Hard Times is a truly fresh coming-of-age story, born of the rumination on “what happens when a nincompoop becomes a stripper.”
The production quality and performances are equal parts bold and excellent; the series is being shot by Daniel Patterson (Spike Lee’s Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, Newlyweeds, Gun Hill Road), and in addition to Amkpa features Ashley Denise Robinson, Bianca Laverne Jones, and Vladimir Versailles. Definitely check it out! It’s provoking, hilarious, and a needed reminder that web based film can actually be GOOD.
