Event description:

The impressive feature debut from Tayarisha Poe is a hyper-stylish immersion into the competing cliques that control an exclusive Pennsylvania prep school. As head of the Spades, the the most powerful faction which exerts its influence through peddling illicit drugs and alcohol, Selah (Lovie Simone) is a Type A overachiever who relishes her status as queen bee of the campus’ social hive. When her authority is called into question, Selah reveals just how far she is willing to go to hold onto her dominance. Driven by a commanding performance by Lovie Simone as the alternately ruthless and vulnerable title character and awash in subtly surreal images, Selah and The Spades is a potent look at the dark side of the teenage drive to be “perfect.”
