Scholarship Description "Medicine For Melancholy" is the critically acclaimed independent film about two African-American twenty-somethings coming to terms with modern day San Francisco. In anticipation of the film's release, Strike Anywhere Films and IFC invite you to find images that reflect the film's blend of romance, politics and the undeniable importance of place. Whether you're in Seattle, New York, Des Moines or wherever, we want to see how your city inspires you and how it effects the romantic, social and political aspects of your life. Watch the trailer to get a sense of the film's themes and the way it incorporates San Francisco, then go out and capture photos that best represent your relationship to the city you call home.
