Early Sunday evening at the AFI Silver Theater in Silver Spring, MD Writer/Director Collins Harris IV held a screening for his new short film ALX. This was only the second screening for the film as it already made its debut at the Martha Vinyard's African American Film Festival this Summer. In short, ALXis a film about a young woman attending an HBCU who finds herself at a crossroads when she begins to start bumping heads with administration. There is a new rule specifically pertaining to the appearance/presentation of the African American students and she now needs to make some decisions about life and collegiate experience.
The private screening for family/friends, Indiegogo Supporters and Press was held in a 75 seated theater but as the screening was in high demand 10 additional chairs were added to accommodate and even towards the end when the panel discussion was being held there were individuals standing/seated on the side. Before the screening started the crowd was greeted by Collins as he thanked them for attending and expressed his excitement for them about to see the film. After the film concluded there was a panel discussion which raised questions about natural hair, how African Americans are viewed in mainstream America when they wear their natural hair, organizations with rules banning certain types of hair styles + more. The panel was moderated by Tim Gordon who is the President of the Washington, DC Film Critics Association.

ALX (pronounced Alex) is a short narrative film set on an HBCU campus. Follows a young girl who bumps heads with school administration over a new rule. Amongst her growing business and a budding relationship, she must decide her next step.
The school's policy is specific, dealing with the appearance and presentation of their African-American students. However, the ideology is rooted in a broader category known as the 'politics of respectability'. The film engages issues surrounding hair, attire, and sexual respectability. ALX is a fictional interpretation of young African-American collegiate life on a fictional HBCU campus.
