Jean of the Joneses film plays at Flint Institute of Arts , meal included

Jean of the Joneses, is an independent film that involves strong and stubborn women who are equally loving.

The story unravels when an estranged grandfather suddenly appears, a grandmother's secrets.

25-year-old Jean Jones leads the way to learning the truth about the family.

"We have a predominately African American community so why not show films that are primarily created by African Americans," says Glenn Wilson, President and CEO of Communities First, Inc.

The film is written and directed by Stella Meghie.

People can watch the film Thursday, January 12, 2017 at the Flint Institute Arts along with food and music at no cost.

Reception begins at 5:30 pm with live music from High Definition.

Italia Gardens will provide a meal.

The event is free.
