Flawd. A Film About Sickle Cell
I first came across the trailer for this film about sickle cell on IG back in February 2020 and I was just so gutted that I wouldn’t be able to see it because, of course, it was screening in LA and I was in my bed in cold England.
So, I started doing some digging to find out more about the film and the storyline just seemed so honest and true to what I know sometimes happens in real life living with sickle cell.
I immediately went to the DM’s asking how we can get it in the UK and the result of that was keeping our fingers crossed for some time in the future. Well guess what…I’m uncrossing my fingers today as they will be doing a virtual screening and I want to share all the deet’s with you all so we can support as much as possible.
FLAWD. The Film About Sickle Cell
FLAWD. is an unfiltered glimpse of the physical, and mental challenges associated with Sickle Cell and how hilarious they can be. After meeting on social media, LA based comic Snow (29) is in the blissful, budding stage of dating Cali Rose (27) but hides from her his chronic illness. While on a date things heat up, severely triggering his condition forcing Snow to confront his fears and come clean to Cali or risk losing their newfound romance.

Disclaimer – The screening is at 6pm (PDT) on 1st July, which is actually 2am (BST) on 2nd July so it’s a go bed early and wake up or stay up late ting.
More and more books about sickle cell are being written, which is amazing to help spread more awareness but I am yet to see, or star in (because I went BBC Drama school and did A Level Performing Arts LOL) a film about sickle cell so I am really looking forward to this.
I’m hoping it will be available to watch after the screening time, but I will be ready with my salted popcorn because I am not missing this.
