Sophia Nahli Allison Interview on her Oscar-nominated film A LOVE SONG FOR LATASHA

Today I chat with Sophia Nahli Allison about her Oscar nominated short documentary film A LOVE SONG FOR LATASHA. The film is currently streaming on Netflix. A reimagined narrative of Latasha Harlins through intimate memories shared by her cousin and best friend. The injustice surrounding the shooting death of 15-year-old Latasha Harlins at a South Central Los Angeles store became a flashpoint for the city’s 1992 civil uprising.  As the Black community expressed its profound pain in the streets, Latasha’s friends and family privately mourned the loss of a vibrant child whose full story was never in the headlines. Three decades later, director Sophia Nahli Allison’s A LOVE SONG FOR LATASHA removes Latasha from the context of her death and rebuilds an archive of a promising life lost. Oral history and memories from Latasha’s best friend and cousin converge in a dreamlike portrait that shows the impact one brief but brilliant life can have. Director Sophia Nahli Allison grew up in South Ce
