The Swarm, a Little Jar, and the Other Black Girl

Plus - Go Behind the Scenes with A Haunting in Venice

Welcome back to the Cause Cinema Spotlight.    

This week we have two dramatic Sci-Fi TV series picks, based on best selling books, and one hilarious independent festival darling.

We’ll start there with… 

Little Jar

Ainsley is a misanthrope who hates people but when she suddenly finds herself in isolation with no one to talk to, she realizes how much she actually misses connection. Enter Ulysses, a dead mouse in a jar. With a little bit of loneliness, a pinch of imagination, and a mouse-sized tuxedo, Ulysses becomes her training wheels in this newly discovered world of friendship.

See Little Jar on Vudu or Amazon

The Other Black Girl

Based on the New York Times bestseller by Zakiya Dalila Harris. Nella, an editorial assistant, is often marginalized as the only black girl at her company, so she’s excited when Hazel is hired. As Hazel begins to rise, Nella discovers something sinister is going on at the company.

You can see The Other Black Girl on Hulu.

The Swarm

Based on a best selling German novel, this 40 million dollar series was acquired out of the Berlin Film Festival by the CW,Produced by Game of Thrones' producer Frank Doelger.

The Swarm chronicles the struggle of humankind against an unknown enemy that lives in the depths of the sea. Just as the reckless treatment of the oceans threatens the natural habitat of this mysterious collective, it strikes back.  A team of scientists propose  a seemingly impossible theory that challenges humanity's self-understanding as the ultimate creation.
