Get excited. A highly ambitious and thoughtful vampire film centered around a Black woman is in production now titled, Octavia: Elegy for a Vampire (or Endless Shards of Jazz for a Brutal World) thanks to the precocious mind of diverse actor/filmmaker Dennis Leroy Kangalee.
Cast and crew are working hard right now in NYC, with the title role going to Numa Perrier. Numa's presence on screen is far from her only molding outlet. She is a producer and content creator with a long list of past and present ventures that "has her in the forefront of emerging contemporary artists."
As more news breaks about Octavia, you will be informed!
