Medicine for Melancholy

Filmed entirely in San Francisco, Medicine for Melancholy is a love story about a one-night stand told through two African-American twenty-somethings dealing with issues of class, identity, and the evolving conundrum of being a minority in rapidly gentrifying San Francisco- a city with the smallest proportional
black population of any other major American City. When Micah (Wyatt Cenac) and Jo’(Tracey
Heggins) stumble into the brightness of a sunny San Francisco day after a hook-up, Jo’ can’t wait
to escape the uncomfortable silence, but a shared cab ride and a lost wallet soon bring a wellintentioned
Micah to her front door. As caution turns to curiosity, the young couple sets off on a
romantic ramble through eclectic neighborhoods and their own lives as they swap views on
everything from the meaning of blackness to letting go of heartbreak.
