A.V. Rockwell’s film follows unapologetic and free-spirited Inez (Teyana Taylor), who kidnaps her six-year-old son Terry from the foster care system. Holding onto their secret and each other, mother and son set out to reclaim their sense of home, identity, and stability, in a rapidly changing New York City.
At the Sundance Festival in 2023 A THOUSAND AND ONE won a Grand Jury Prize. Teyana Taylor as mother Inez and Aaron Kingsley Adetola as her son Terry are such a great acting couple who give this movie such an incredible authenticity.
