Days before his birthday and weeks before his wedding, Tate Bradley, a twenty-five year old, African-American man attempts to commit suicide. He survives the ordeal, but from his actions, it is obvious that something is killing Tate! The question is: What? Tate attempts to isolate himself to his apartment - hiding from the world. To his dismay, one by one the significant players in his troubled life come to check on him. With each visit, more is revealed about how each family member, friend, and enemy played a role in Tate's attempted suicide - forcing Tate to face his own demons.

Truly remarkable film that brings humanity to an inhumane situation, 14 June 2008
Author: vaucluse88 from San Francisco CA

Fortunate to have seen "Something is Killing Tate" today, screened as part of the 10th annual San Francisco Black Film Festival. An amazingly complex and heart rending story that manages to have a happy ending where one would normally never be imagined. Director/writer/exec producer Leon Lozano has produced a dynamic story filled with characters we wish we could say aren't real...but life tells us differently. This film merits every award it has won and damn well better win some more! Today it won two major awards, the best feature film award and the overall grand prize, the Melvin Van Peebles Award. Knowing Melvin, he would and should be proud.

See this film. Support this film. Make sure this film is seen by audiences the world over. It may have been made by a black filmmaker but it is a story that rings sadly true no matter what your color or culture. Shine the light, tell the tale, and make sure this is not the last we hear/see of M. Lozano.


This is real independent film-making, 23 March 2008
Author: magdub from United States

This film played to sold out crowds at the Pan African Film Festival and I can see why. The film presents an amazing cast which really brought this story to life. I appreciated how the director managed to make an entertaining movie with such a difficult subject without ever going over the top or trivializing the situation.

5.0 out of 5 stars We need more films like this.... April 25, 2010
I passed this film millions of times at an Independent Video store. I was up in the wee hours of the morning and it was showing on Encore. Boy oh Boy.... WHy didn't I rent this. This film was amazing. It also revealed childhood abuse. The msg that I got from the movie was.. Confront the evils of the past so the pain can end and A BEAUTIFUL future is born. PEACE
