Currently on the film festival circuit, is American-born Haitian Kervans Barthelemy’s feature film directorial debut titled Kaleb, from a script he wrote as well.
It’s full synopsis reads:
KALEB (Fred Toliver Jr.) has been kicked out of his home in Long Island, N.Y. for almost a year. His family’s tense demeanor is apparent as they try to ignore the fact that Kaleb is not there. One day JACQUE (Atibon Nazaire), Kaleb’s father, sees Kaleb in a local newspaper accused of raping a young girl. The police search for Kaleb and his friends while the incident sparks friction within the family, demanding Jacque respond to his wife’s ultimatum: FIND KALEB OR LOSE THE REST OF HIS FAMILY.
The film was made in 2011, and has been traveling the film festival circuit since completion, most recently screening (just yesterday actually) at the Artisan Festival International Hamptons World Peace Initiative, which take place in Cannes, France and the Hamptons.
No word yet on where it’ll screen next, nor what it’s distribution prospects are.
