Screen Test.
Somewhere posting a non-iPhone image for the first time in over a year to introduce you to my sister, Sameerah L. Harris, a total badass actor who was recently awarded The Gold Medal for Best Actor in the 2014 Manhattan Short Film Festival, carrying the film “The Bravest, The Boldest” (Directed by Moon Molson) to a Bronze Medal. See, total badass.

In the film, she plays Sayeeda Porter, a young mother in a Harlem housing project who realizes that the arrival of two uniformed soldiers brings news she can’t bring herself to accept.

We made this portrait in my home studio in August, days before she made her way out west to continue pursuing her dreams.

Much respect, sis. | #family
