2018, 60 minutes, color, DCP | Written by Elwood Reid and Justin Hillian; directed by Tanya Hamilton; with Jason Mitchell, Jacob Latimore, Ntare Guma, Mbaho Mwine, Alex Hibbert, Yolonda Ross, Tiffany Boone, and Armando Riesco

Includes a conversation with creator Lena Waithe

Before she exploded on the scene as a part of Aziz Ansari’s transformative Netflix series «Master of None,» Lena Waithe was plying her trade as a writer bathing under the influence of TV, while questioning why her existence as a woman of color was ignored. Now, she’s a star—being the first African American woman to win an Emmy for writing—and her vision has been realized. «The Chi,» which she created, premieres on the pay cable system this month. Set in Chicago (Waithe’s hometown), this sprawling and compelling melodrama focuses on three different dreamers, separated only by age and their ability to hang onto hope. «The Chi» has one of the best casts in recent years; it includes Jason Mitchell («Straight Outta Compton»), Jacob Latimore («Sleight»), Yolonda Ross («The Getdown») and Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine. After a screening of the premiere episode of «The Chi,» Waithe and her cast will take part in a Q&A about the making of the show.
