Hey New York!
Sudz Sutherland‘s drama Home Again, which stars Tatyana Ali, Lyriq Bent, Stephan James, Richard Chevolleau, C.C.H. Pounder, and Fefe Dobson, will make its NYC premiere at this year’s Urbanworld Film Festival, which runs from September 18-22.
A film S&A has been on-top of since the project was first announced last year, Sutherland’s sophomore feature effort tells the tale of three young people deported home to Jamaica after being raised abroad since infancy. Once landed in Kingston and without a compass of any kind, each of the characters embarks on a journey that tests and forces them to discover who they truly are. Ultimately, it’s a story of survival.
The Canadian-produced feature, Sudz’s second, was shot on location in Trinidad, Jamaica and Canada, earlier last year, and is described as “a searing drama in the vein of City of God.”
Entertainment One has distribution rights to the film, with co-production partners The National Film Board and with the participation of Telefilm Canada, and the Harold Greenberg Fund.
UWFF 2013 is set to take place on September 18-22 at midtown Manhattan’s AMC 34th Street, with Baggage Claim, David E. Talbert’s new rom-com, opening up this year’s festivities.
