Old-timey cars line Strivers' Row for film adaptation of 'Passing'

Updated: Mar 16


The film adaptation of "Passing," a novella by Harlem Renaissance author Nella Larsen, was shooting in Harlem today.

Directed by Rebecca Hall, the movie stars Ruth Negga and Tessa Thompson.

Set in 1920s Harlem, the story focuses on two light-skinned childhood friends who meet as adults after one has chosen to "pass" as white.

The movie's cast and crew took over all of W 138th Street on Harlem's historic Strivers' Row, which had a smattering of vintage cars parked in front of the stately row houses.

The current release date is January 2020.
