    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Medicine for Melancholy. In this internationally acclaimed and award-winning debut feature film by director Barry Jenkins, 24 hours in the life of two African-American twenty-somethings are shown with distinct humanity, vibrancy and heart. What begins as a one-night stand neither truly remember bleeds into a day neither of them will forget. Set against the monotone background of San Francisco, the couple deals with the racism, gentrification and prejudice the city can frequently offer, while experiencing the thrill of new love in this modern urban romance. With as much heart as it has substance, this independent film was a hit during the 2008 festival circuit and became one of the most successful indie-flicks of the year.
