Amazon Studios debuted Master, a thriller starring Regina Hall, at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival, which addresses the hardships of living on university as the lone Black woman in a reputedly haunted dorm…while still being racist. It was one of the more intriguing films I saw on my virtual Sundance trip this year, and it clarified why I’d been keeping track of Hall’s development on-screen. She’s always funny, but in this performance, she takes it to the next level, and we have an exclusive first look at the video ahead of its March 18 premiere in select cinemas and streaming on Prime Video.
Three women struggle to find their place at a prestigious New England institution whose chilly elitism may hide something more sinister in Mariama Diallo’s first movie, which she wrote and directed. Professor Gail Bishop (Hall) was recently appointed to “Master” of a residence hall, marking the first time a Black woman has held the position at legendary Ancaster College. Gail becomes entangled in the struggles and tribulations of Jasmine Moore (Renee), an exuberant and cheerful Black freshman, as she tries to breathe new life into a centuries-old ritual.
Professor Gail Bishop (Hall) was recently promoted to “Master” of a residence hall at the university, a first for a Black woman. Bishop is soon “caught up in the woes of student Jasmine Moore (Zoe Renee), who has been allotted a haunted dorm room.” When Moore fights with Professor Liv Beckman (Amber Gray), things get even worse.”
Check out the trailer for Master below.
Joshua Astrachan, Brad Becker-Parton, and Andrea Roa produced the picture, which also stars Talia Ryder and Talia Balsam. Claire Edelman and Rita Walsh served as associate producers, with Hall, Sophia Lin, and Terence Nance acting as executive producers.
You can stream ‘Master’ on Amazon Prime Video March 18th 2022.
