Writer/director Sheldon Candis’ dramatic film LUV with Common, Danny Glover, Meagan Good, Dennis Haysbert, Michael Rainey Jr, Lonette McKee and Charles S. Dutton will have a benefit screening in Chicago on Monday, September 10 at the Showcase ICON Theater before its theatrical release.
As you will recall, the film centers on a young boy who spends one tough day with his Uncle Vincent (LUV – Learning Uncle Vincent) and in the process discovers some rather unpleasant truths about him.
The screening will benefit The Common Ground Foundation, founded by Common, which uses creative arts to expose youth to new opportunities.
After the screening there will be a Q&A with Common and other participants dealing with the issues that youth face every day.
