Breaking Up is Easy?

At least according to "One Bedroom" it is. But, moving out is hard.

"After five years of ups and downs, an African American 30-something couple in a gentrifying Brooklyn neighborhood spends their final afternoon together arguing and remembering better days, as one of them moves out and hopefully on with her life." That's the film's synopsis. And it's another one of the independent films that will be showing on Thursday, August 23, 2018 at 11:30 a.m. at the Emagine Theater in Royal Oak, Michigan.

"One Bedroom" stars and is directed by Darien Sills-Evans. Here's a little bit of info on him:

"Born and raised in Brooklyn, Sills-Evans started his film career writing, producing and directing dozens of PSAs and award-winning educational industrials. He wrote, produced, and directed his first feature in 2001, X-Patriots. In its film festival run, the film would win Audience Award: 24HourFilmFestival (2006), LA Weekly Award Best Screenplay 2002, CCI Digital Award for Best Ensemble Cast 2002, Film Finders Maverick Award for Quality Low-Budget Film 2002 (Method Fest), Critic’s Choice: Chicago Reader 2001, Best Feature AngelCiti Chicago 2001, and be nominated for the Gordon Parks Award at IFP 2001."

"As he wrote “One Bedroom”, Sills-Evans hoped to make a film in which the audience would recognize themselves or someone they knew in the characters, “The film is very Black, but it’s also very universal. These characters could be anyone and in the context of the story, they never actually talk about race. Unfortunately or not, misery in a relationship is something we’ve all seen or experienced. At the very least, I hope that our film can find some laughs and a different point of view to ending romance.”

"One Bedroom" will be showing at 11:30 a.m. Film goers who would like to see "One Bedroom" can purchase a single ticket to this showing, or buy an all-day pass to see some of the other films that will be showing as well.
