Home Again

The National Film Board of Canada (NFB) lineup at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival includes premieres of three new feature films by acclaimed Toronto directors, showcasing the NFB’s role in unique and innovative Canadian cinema.

One of those 3 films is a title we've had on our radar since first alerting you to it last fall - Sudz Sutherland's Home Again, which stars Tatyana AliLyriq BentStephan JamesRichard ChevolleauC.C.H. Pounder, and Fefe Dobson.

The film's world premiere happens later today, so hopefully we'll get some general reactions to it by tomorrow morning.

As a recap...

Home Again tells the story 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 pushes their endurance beyond measure and forces them to discover who they truly are. On the most fundamental level, Home Again asks the question, How would you survive?

The Canadian-produced feature, Sudz's second, was shot on location in TrinidadJamaica and Canada, earlier this year, and is being described as "a searing drama in the vein of City of God."

Producers say it's a passion project for director Sudz, that the material is "really tough," and that the actors had to delve "into incredibly difficult emotional terrain."

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.

No trailer yet; but check out these newly-released character posters below; and if you missed it, watch the CBC news report underneath the posters, in which director Sudz Sutherland and his wife Jennifer Holness, talk about the relevance of the film, premiering at TIFF, and their mad dash to finish it ahead of its TIFF premiere next week, you'll find several clips from the film throughout:
