The Organization of Black Screenwriters, Inc. (OBS) began in 1986 to address the lack of black writers represented within the entertainment industry.
Our primary function is to assist screenwriters in the creation of works for film and television and to help them present their work to the industry.
As a result of our great efforts and the continued growth of the organization, we have developed a powerful network which includes the Writers Guild of America and many agents, producers, directors and studios.
OBS is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization

MIDDLE OF NOWHERE
DIRECTOR: AVA DUVERNAY
WRITER: AVA DUVERNAY
Ruby, a bright medical student, sets aside her dreams and suspends her career when her husband is incarcerated. As the committed couple stares into the hollow end of an eight-year prison sentence, Ruby must learn to live another life, one marked by shame and separation. But through a chance encounter and a stunning betrayal that shakes her to her core, this steadfast wife is soon propelled in new and often shocking directions of self-discovery - caught between two worlds and two men in the search for herself.
