An Exploration Of Black Queerness And Radical Honesty

195 LEWIS is a dramedy series about a group of friends navigating the realities of being Black, queer, and polyamorous in Brooklyn, NY.


Published:

Directed by Bronx-bred, Brooklyn-based filmmaker Channelle Aponte Pearson and co-written with Terence Nance, 195 Lewis is an honest exploration of black queerness and radical honesty.

The series follows Yuri and Camille as they test the boundaries of their open relationship. Yuri’s growing infatuation with a new lover leaves Camille distressed, which is only amplified by the unexpected arrival of Yuri’s old college friend Kris, who shows up with nowhere else to stay.

The pilot episode first screened at the Blackstar Film Festival in 2014 and had its international premiere at the International Film Festival at Rotterdam earlier this year.

This will be the first time BAM will screen a web series featuring the first five episodes of the series at its independent theater.
