Better Mus Come

A reminder...

AFFRM's first pick-up of 2013, Storm Saulter's award-winning feature film Better Mus' Come, will open on March 15, in New York (AMC Empire 25) and Los Angeles (Downtown Independent). But before 2 days before that date (TONIGHT, March 13) there will be simultaneous one-night engagements in Philadelphia, Atlanta, Washington DC, Seattle, Chicago, and Houston - presented by partners of the distributor's new label, Array: Imagenation, Urbanworld Film Festival, BronzeLens Film Festival, ReelBlack Film Series, Langston Hughes African-American Film Festival, Howard Film Culture and Houston African-American Museum.

Passion, politics and poverty collide as this love story unfolds against a backdrop of political turmoil in 1970's Jamaica, as rival gangs enlisted by warring political factions disrupt the democratic process, leading to bloodshed in the streets. Better Mus' Come begins in 1977 and ends the in the first couple days of 1978 during the Green Bay Massacre, and follows Ricky, a gang leader and political pawn, as he struggles to navigate the hardships of life in Kingston, and to define a better way of life for his young son.

Exact locations and times for tonight's March 13 pre-release one-night engagements follow below; I believe one of those screenings (in Washington, DC) is sold out, or close to being sold out. But you should check NOW if you're interested in seeing the film tonight:
