Ashanti J'Aria & Shomari Love in Passionate 'Maya & Her Lover' Trailer
"I'm not some lonely old cougar looking for some young stud to take care of…" 1091 Pictures has unveiled an official trailer for a passionate indie romance titled Maya & Her Lover, the latest feature film made by filmmaker Nicole Sylvester (also the director of Minor Blues, Layla's Girl, and The Owner previously). This recently premiered at the 2021 American Black Film Festival, and it arrives on VOD starting this December. The mundane life of a 39 year old introvert is disrupted when she begins a steamy but contentious affair with a much younger Man. Kaseem has dark side that impedes his journey as he navigates his way as a Black Man in America, while Maya is stifled by memories of her overbearing father. Starring Ashanti J'Aria, Shomari Love, Faiven Feshazion, Al Thompson, and Hisham Tawfiq. It's nice to see something that goes against the expected & cliche "old guy, young girl" romance and instead gives us an empowering story.
