Preview Indie Boxing Drama "Mikel's Faith" - Screening In NYC Next Week

Ya know, I’m only now becoming familiar with the upcoming Hell’s Kitchen Film Festival here in NYC, even though I’ve lived here for 8 years now.

I already plan on attending a screening of one film scheduled to screen there tomorrow evening which I profiled yesterday (Lord Byron, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival this year); and, maybe partly due to that post yesterday, I’ve been receiving emails from other filmmakers with films screening at the festival, alerting me to their own films as well; which is good! Saves me the trouble of having to go through the entire lineup looking for films I probably should check out :)

Like this one… titled Mikel’s Faith, written & directed by Alexander Etseyatse.

Its synopsis reads:

Mikel Hill an incarcerated former Golden Glove Champ is suddenly released from prison. He then tries to restore his former life and confronts his past friends, enemies and makes a revelation within 24 hours of his release.

The film stars the writer/director himself, Alexander Etseyatse, as the titular Mikel.

Not really sure what to expect here. The trailer below could be much stronger, tighter; shorter, less music, more dialogue. Although Alexander states that this is just a teaser, with the official trailer coming soon!

But there’s enough in it to peak my curiosity, so I’ll check it out for myself when it screens on Labor Day – Monday Sept. 5th at 3 PM.

By the way, if you’re in NYC and interested in the Hell’s Kitchen Film Festival, click HERE for their full lineup.

The teaser seems a bit too long, it should have been shorter. But other than that, the director/lead has screen presence. When you mention the director is playing the lead, I was ready to dismiss this film completely. But after watching the teaser it’s seem stylized. Which is a positive for any film, hopefully the Trailer tells me more about the story.

Sometimes I wonder why dudes releases something like this? I mean it was absolutely nothing. On top of that, the short little peaks at his boxing skills would lead one to believe the brother should have used a double. The boy can’t box.

Seriously, who was he trying to attract with this?

@ Quentin. My thoughts exactly…,

The teaser actually looks very good, I like how the images do the talking. It makes me curious what the film is about.

I hope the trailer makes more sense.
