Restless City

AFFRM's third theatrical release - Andrew Dosunmu's enchanting acclaimed feature film debut, Restless City - is now available for rent via VOD, starting today, October 2.

So those who didn't get to see it in theaters earlier this year (and I know a lot of you didn't), it's now just a few clicks away, courtesy of Screen Media Films.

Look for it as a digital rental on iTunes, in HD and SD, at usual prices. 

The hard copy (DVD) release will come a week from today, for those who prefer that format; it will also be available as a digital purchase at that time as well.

But until then, you can rent it via iTunes, and watch on your computer, iPhone, iPod, iPad, and, of course, your television - whatever you prefer. It's one of those films that begs to be seen on as large a screen as possible; you can thank Braford Young's beautiful cinemtography for that.

Restless City tells the story of young, nomadic Senegalese immigrant, Djbirl (played by Sy Alassane), an aspiring musician, struggling to survive on the fringes of New York City. When he falls in love with a prostitute (Jamaican-born model/actress Nicole Grey) who works for Bekay, the local loan shark, he suddenly finds some much needed meaning and purpose to his otherwise aimless existence, forcing him to make decisions that eventually prove fatal.

The New York City-set story is one that we've championed on this site since its Sundance debut in January 2011. So check it out for yourselves if you haven't yet.

Dosunmu is currently in post-production on his next film, Ma George, which stars The Walking Dead star Danai Gurira (as Michonne); the project is a Sundance Institute Grant recipient, and I wouldn't at all be surprised if it made its world premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
