Nana’s Boys, an exploration of Black gay relationships comes to VOD/DVD

Breaking Glass Pictures has announced the North American wide release of the LGBTQ+ festival darling Nana’s Boys directed by Ashton Pina.

“Upon seeing Nana’s Boys, I knew that the film was very special”, said Rich Wolff, CEO at Breaking Glass Pictures. “Director Ashton Pina’s character study of two imperfect lovers holds your attention from beginning to end with twists and turns.”

Nana’s Boys is an intimate peek into the relationship of Amari and Q. On the morning of his 30th Birthday, Amari struggles to make decisions on what’s next for his life and defining his purpose. Q is on track to become the youngest partner at his law firm and plans an elaborate soiree to celebrate the birthday of his long-time partner. The day takes a rattling turn when an explosion cuts off utilities across New York City and forces the city into a mandatory lockdown. Their relationship is tested as the couple grapples with memories that could shatter their plans altogether. 

“I deliberately wanted to shine my lens on a relationship of Black gay men, a rare pairing in media”, said Pina. “The journey of Amari and Q deserves to reach as wide of an audience as possible and I’m confident we’ll shatter expectations.”
