The Magic City Poster

Scheduled to debut in the Spring of 2013, music video director R. Malcolm Jones' drama, The Magic City, also his feature film debut, which stars Jenifer Lewis, Jamie Hector, Keith David, and introducing Latrice Jackson, LaShay Jackson and Amiya Thomas.

Said to be full of vibrant characters, and gut-wrenching twists and turns, the film's synopsis reads:

Set in the vibrant atmosphere of Miami’s underground teenage club world, we follow the powerful journey of Amiya Castle, who feels discarded by her mother after being left to spend the summer with relatives. In the gritty Liberty City area, Amiya, a deeply troubled girl, comes face to face with unbelievable circumstances of tragedy and turmoil that she chronicles. When Amiya is forced to explain a school report, she reveals accounts of her summer infatuation with the neighborhood thug and of a young girl’s attempt to keep her drug-addicted mother alive. Amiya is also pressed to explain the tragic story of two sisters, Nia and Tiana, who are fiercely devoted to each other and to staying out of the welfare system, where they spent several years after their mother abandoned them. Now living with their only available relative, Aunt Georgia, Nia and Tiana, feel hopeful for the first time in their young lives. After an unexpected death occurs, the girls’ friendship grows into a tight bond, where personal lessons are learned and a dark secret is kept…

Again, the film is expected to debut in the spring of 2013. When we have an official date, so will you.
