FINESSE | AN ORIGINAL SERIES

Directed and Written by VINCENT MARTELL 


Starring Jaren Merrell, Vincent Martell, and Jeez Loueez

“In a nutshell, Finesse is an ode to hustle culture. Within seconds, Finesse enthralls us into this loop of Martell, Kizer, and Daryn’s friendship, their love lives, and “the grind” that builds them up and breaks them down just the same. With moments that are soft, isolated, and somber, and equally moments that are vibrant and explosive, Finesse achieves what has been missing from the media’s representation of blackness, queerness, and sex work up until this point.”
