First screened in September 2017
Director: Antonio Méndez Esparza. Cast: Andrew Bleechington, Regina Williams, Robert Williams, Ry'nesia Chambers. Screenplay: Antonio Méndez Esparza.

Twitter Capsule: Quietly astonishing, beat after beat. Rich, round portraits. Non-professionals beat every other cast at TIFF.

Second Capsule: The best reasons for a festival like #TIFF17 are for people to see and distributors to buy a movie like Life and Nothing More. World needs it!

VOR:   American and specifically Black American lives, voices, conflicts, and contexts captured by insiders and outsiders in perfect sync. Couldn't be more timely.
