AFFRM's Array Releasing has announced a Tuesday, May 20 double-feature iTunes release of 2 recent pick-ups that enjoyed theatrical releases last year: Neil Drumming's dramedy, Big Words and Storm Saulter's romantic drama, Better Mu's Com.

Drumming's lauded Slamdance 2013 Official Selection enjoyed an international tour last year, that saw it released theatrically in the USA, followed by UK and Sierra Leone playdates.

The Brooklyn-set Big Words centers on members of a once-promising hip-hop group, now in their late 30's, struggling with regret, disappointment and change, set against the backdrop of Election Night, 2008 - when Barack Obama was elected.

The film stars Dorian MissickYaya AlafiaGbenga AkinnagbeDarien Sills-EvansZachary Booth and Jean Grae.

And Saulter's acclaimed Better Mus' Come, his debut feature, tells the tale of a collision of passion, politics and poverty, against a tumultuous 1970s Jamaica backdrop, as rival gangs enlisted by warring political factions, disrupt the democratic process.

Better Mus Come stars Sheldon ShepherdNicole GreyRicardo Orgill, Everaldo Creary, and Roger Guenveur Smith.

AFFRM's first pick-up of 2013 counts, among its accolades, Best Feature Award winner at the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival as well as the Bahamas Intl Film Festival; Best Director Award at the Pan-African Film Festival; and the Best Actor Award at the American Black Film Festival.

Look for both films on iTunes starting next week Tuesday, May 20.

    LOL at "Exclusive" because tomorrow will be a SELMA "Exclusive" at Deadline. Then, Monday will be a casting "Exclusive" at The Hollywood Reporter. I'm guessing next Wednesday blackfilm dot com will have an "Exclusive" on who will be hired to pick up trash.
