Directed by Braxton Rae

Four ten-year-olds meet at a wedding. Little do they know, they will become the center of each other’s lives for decades to come. Jumping through time, we see these people only during important life moments such as prom, funerals, weddings, anniversaries and even divorces. …but you could’ve held my hand uses dance, music and poetry to explore sexuality, gender, race, love and blackness in a beautiful meditation on how love manifests in our lives as we experience life’s ups and downs.

Contains mature language and themes. Contains brief scene that includes a state of undress and simulated nudity. 

Runtime is 100 minutes with no intermission.
