Award-winning filmmaker Kiara Jones’s debut feature is a warm-hearted romcom that follows three sisters searching for happiness in the midst of the holiday season. Andrea is days from marrying the picture-perfect Brent, when her first love, Gabriel, walks into her pre-wedding photo shoot, turning her world upside down. Andrea reaches out to her successful oldest sister, Lori, who is having her own problems as she is suffering, alone, through premature labor. Middle sister Charlotte is overwhelmed by her career, kids and commitment-phobic boyfriend, and wonders if now is the time to break free of their relationship. Surprisingly, these three intelligent, charismatic, independent women are all manipulated by their overbearing mother, Miranda, and her archaic notions of womanhood. Christmas Wedding Baby takes an endearingly bittersweet approach to bridal jitters, single parenthood, and the joys of sisterhood. Christmas Wedding Baby took the Directors Guild of America Grand Jury Award this year. Jones’s short film Mice or Men screened at the inaugural Honolulu African American Film Festival in 2011.
Special guests (Feb. 7 at 7:30pm): Director Kiara Jones and executive producer Chann Harris.
