Up next in the ActNow: New Voices In Black Cinema screening series (which myself and fellow Shadow And Act contributor Curtis John are co-curators of, by the way) here in Brooklyn, New York is a film I've previously profiled on this site, appropriately titled, The Wonder Year, which centers on "a year in the life of CEO, NAACP ambassador, Duke University professor, husband, father, son and Grammy Award winning producer 9th Wonder, following one of soul music’s most dynamic figures from his childhood home to late nights in the studio and everywhere in between."

Up next in the ActNow: New Voices In Black Cinema screening series (which myself and fellow Shadow And Act contributor Curtis John are co-curators of, by the way) here in Brooklyn, New York is a film I've previously profiled on this site, appropriately titled, The Wonder Year, which centers on "a year in the life of CEO, NAACP ambassador, Duke University professor, husband, father, son and Grammy Award winning producer 9th Wonder, following one of soul music’s most dynamic figures from his childhood home to late nights in the studio and everywhere in between."

Featuring: DJ Premier, DJ Green Lantern, J. Cole, Murs, Phonte, Sha Money XL, Young Guru, The Alchemist, Drake & more.

I haven't seen the film yet, though my cohorts have; and based on the below trailer, it looks well put together. And, while I won't necessarily call myself a pure hip-hop head, I did wear out my Little Brother The Minstrel Show CD back in 2005/2006. Since then 9th Wonder (aka Patrick Douthit) has worked with the likes of Mary J. Blige, Jean Grae, Wale, Jay-Z, Erykah Badu, Ludacris, and others.

Directed by Kenneth Price, the 78-minute feature documentary is currently in distribution mode, as the production team works to drum up interest in its release; but if you live in NYC, you'll have a chance to see it next month, during the next installment of the ActNow: New Voices In Black Cinema screening series at BAM Cinemas, here in Brooklyn, NY.

Details: Thursday, July 28th; screenings at 4:30pm, 6:50pm* & 9:30pm, at BAM Rose Cinemas - 30 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11217.

The 6:50pm screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Kenneth Price.

In the meantime, check out the trailer below:
