‘We Grown Now’ Festival Screenings

August 30, 2023 –  We Grown Now, directed by Minhal Baig, will get its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, and screen as the Opening Night Film at the Chicago International Film Festival on October 11.

The Chicago Tribune wrote about the film this morning calling it “a gentle, powerful coming-of-age gem” with scenes that are “beautifully rendered.”

In 1992 Chicago, as Michael Jordan solidifies himself as a champion, a story of two young legends in their own right begins. As wide-eyed and imaginative best friends Malik and Eric traverse the city, looking to escape the mundaneness of school and the hardships of growing up in public housing, their unbreakable bond is challenged when tragedy shakes their community just as they are learning to fly.
