Hey NYC - this weekend presents your very last chance to see Alain Gomis' 3rd feature film, Tey in a theatrical setting! So, if you still haven't seen the magical drama, and you're even the slightest bit curious about it, I strongly suggest you take advantage of this final opportunity to do so! BelleMoon Productions is releasing Senegalese director Gomis' 3rd feature film at the My Image Studios (MIST) Theater in Harlem (46 West 116th Street) - a Creatively Speaking presentation

After a week-long run in New York which is now coming to close, the film will show in select cities across North America, including Atlanta, Nashville, Austin, New Orleans, Los Angeles, Houston, Oakland, San Francisco, and Vancouver

A recap follows...

The fantastical narrative, which stars Saul Williams and Aissa Maiga, follows a man named Satche (played by Williams) during the last 24 hours of his life.

Of the film, director Gomis previously stated, "It's the kind of tale that takes place in an imaginary society in which death comes looking for someone. The film starts when he opens his eyes and ends when they close," said the director of the critically-acclaimed L'Afrance (2001) and Andalucia (2008).

Saul Williams, who most will likely recall from his work on the 1998 film Slam (as both writer and star), last appeared as himself in a series of documentaries - most recently Nelson George's paean to the city he loves, Brooklyn Boheme.

On Aujourd'hui, Williams adds, "The film is not set in Dakar, we never say where it is taking place... [Satche is a] man of great intelligence, with little ambition who is not interested in the American dream and returns to his country after 15 years in the United States, to the unpleasant surprise of his family."

The award-winning critical favorite, produced by Senegalese company Cinekap, and financed mostly with French funds, co-stars the absolutely lovely and talented Aissa Maiga (who you may recall, also co-stars in Phillip Niang's Toussaint L'Ouverture), in a cast that also includes Djolof Mbengue, and Doss Thierno Ndiaye.

BelleMoon Productions notes that, in addition to the above-announced play-dates, the company is also attempting a hybridized, community-driven distribution model for the film, and would like to work with entities who are interested and equipped with the right tools, to co-host community screenings of the film as well.


BelleMoon Productions (www.bellemoonproductions.comis a very independent, emerging and dynamic multimedia company created in 2007, dedicated to the development, production and distribution of untold stories through compelling narrative features, documentary films, and other hybrid formats, which cross cultural and linguistic barriers. And Gomis' Tey certainly fits that criteria.

I've seen Tey twice, and found it enrapturing. A quiet, mythical tale that progresses more like a lush visual poem. It's recommended viewing, so see it, if you're in NYC this weekend!

Here's a trailer:
