Trailer Watch - A New Teaser Of Nelson George's "Migrations" With Chris Rock

Author and director Nelson George has released a new teaser for his international flick Migrations starring Tigist Selam, Saul Williams, Osas Ighoduro, Epee Dingong and Ariane PlubelChris Rock also has a cameo.

Ms. Woo profiled the project back in April and it’s been updated since then. The film is still in post production and is expected to be on the festival circuit in 2012. Here’s George’s description of the flick:

Helen (Tigist Selam) is the collector, a gatherer of objects and people for the Liberators, an international organization that steals African art from European museums and galleries and ships them back home. Unfortunately Interpol is after the Liberators and Helen is on the run even as she seeks the Three Medallions of Ethiopia.

His documentary, Brooklyn Boheme, is still on the festival circuit and if you missed Tambay’s podcast interview with him, where he talks about the production and the state of black films in general, you can go HERE.

The synopsis sounded tight. The trailer IMO failed to tell me anything about the movie's premise. It looked like a New York Film Academy exercise. Having celebrity friends like Chris Rock, Saul Williams and Carl Hancock Rux's doesn't sell me or the story. Hope Mr. George will step his cinematic game up to match this great idea.


The synopsis sounds great.


WHY are trailers 2 minutes long and still not a proper representation of the damn movie? If I hadn't read the damn synopsis I would have skipped the thing 1 minute in.


This looks very interesting. Thanks, Cynthia!


The music is beautiful in this trailer. I wish their was more description of what the film is about in the trailer. I'll be looking for this on the festival circuit.
