JUST ANOTHER GIRL
ON THE I.R.T. (1992) Chantel Mitchell (Ariyan Johnson), a hip,
articulate, black high-school girl in Brooklyn, is determined not to
become “just another girl on the IRT” (the IRT is one of NYC’s subway
lines). She dreams of medical school, a family, and an escape from the
generational poverty and street-corner life her friends seem to have
accepted as their lot. But personal and sexual challenges confront
Chantel on her way to fulfilling these dreams. Written and Directed by
