Homecoming

From writer/director Eugene Ashe, comes Homecoming, a featue film that premiered at this year’s Martha’s Vineyard African American Film Festival, which ended over the weekend.

The synopsis for Homecoming, a Saatchi & Saatchi Nothing’s Impossible producer’s award finalist at the MVAAFF, as well as a nominee for Best Feature Film in HBO’s Competition, reads:

Homecoming tells the intelligent, funny and poignant story of five friends who attended an HBCU together in the 1990s, and reunite for Homecoming weekend at the house that was once their college dorm. News of one member’s recent death forces the friends to reflect on the past; rekindle relationships; reveal secrets; and redefine their lives.

About the filmmaker, in his own words: 

I am a native New Yorker and Harlemite, and was a Sony recording artist in the mid-90’s, as a part of the band “Funky Poets,” we were best known for a song on the “Free Willy” soundtrack. From there, I segued into film and TV by working on the HBO show “Oz.” In 2001, I was in negotiations with Miramax on my first feature film, under a two-picture deal that 40 Acres and a Mule had after the success of “The Best Man;” my film was to be their next production, but all that came to a screeching halt when 9/11 occurred, which caused my career as a filmmaker to go into a state of arrested development until now.

The trailer follows below; stay tuned for news on upcoming screenings in your neck of the woods, as the film travels Stateside:
