Anyone who regularly follows S & A, knows that we chronicled Damon Russell’s docu(or mocku)drama, Snow on Tha Bluff, more times than we can count.
It’s the little movie that could; or if you prefer, the little ratchet movie that could.
By now, you know the premise is about an “Atlanta robbery boy and crack dealer, Curtis Snow, who steals a camera from some college kids in a dope deal and made a documentary about his life.”
Of course the hook is whether it’s all real or a fake mockumenatry (I’m convinced the latter); it has its defenders, usually those who like to “keep it real,” and suburban wanna-be-hip nerdy white guys who think this is THE AUTHENTIC BLACK EXPERIENCE.
The film made its premiere at the 2011 Slamdance Film Festival and did get a limited theatrical release this past April.
But now our cousins across the Big Bond will get their chance to see the film, now that it’s been announced that Showbox Media will release the film in the U.K., on Blu-ray, on November 12th.
