SOLOMON'S MOOD; a film by Tryphena Wade

SOLOMON'S MOOD is the story of two lovers...who are also strangers. Using the ancient, Biblical text of Song of Solomon, these two pen love letters to one another, knowing that the love they want exists, but not knowing when or where they will encounter it. Will their chance encounters be the continuation of their individual love stories?


SOLOMON'S MOOD has been a labor of love for me. As an actor and consumer of media, I'm often left wanting when watching the industry's portrayal of love and romance, specifically between two Black characters. I had a strong desire to explore love from the perspective of two people who've not yet met, but know there is a love perfect for them.


I will direct and produce this film and I'm asking for your help to cover the costs of this independent project.

Of course, every amount helps and is greatly appreciated. I thank you in advance for your contribution!
