Confluential Films, founded by filmmaker Tommy Oliver, has signed on to executive produce Jinn, writer/director Nijla Mu’min’s feature film debut, a coming of age drama premiering in competition at the SXSW Film Festival.

Jinn is Mu’min’s coming of age story about, a 17 year old carefree black girl named Summer whose world is turned upside down when her mother Jade abruptly converts to Islam and becomes a different person which prompts Summer to reevaluate her own life and identity.  The film is loosely based on the filmmaker’s Black and half-Islamic upbringing and serves as a timely, fresh look at identity, Islam, and first love in contemporary Los Angeles.

Confluential is the company behind the hit OWN docuseries Black Love, which highlights love stories from the Black community and seeks to answer the question, “What does it take to making a marriage work?”  The docuseries became the network’s most-watched series debut ever, was nominated for two NAACP Image Awards, and is currently in post-production for the second season.

Jinn will make it’s world debut at SXSW on Mar 11th – For more information on how you can obtain tickets please check out the SXSW site HERE.
