Ya know, I'm only now becoming familiar with the upcoming Hell's Kitchen Film Festival here in NYC, even though I've lived here for 8 years now.

I already plan on attending a screening of one film scheduled to screen there tomorrow evening which I profiled yesterday (Lord Byron, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival this year); and, maybe partly due to that post yesterday, I've been receiving emails from other filmmakers with films screening at the festival, alerting me to their own films as well; which is good! Saves me the trouble of having to go through the entire lineup looking for films I probably should check out :)

Like this one... titled Mikel's Faith, written & directed by Alexander Etseyatse.

Its synopsis reads:

Mikel Hill an incarcerated former Golden Glove Champ is suddenly released from prison. He then tries to restore his former life and confronts his past friends, enemies and makes a revelation within 24 hours of his release.

The film stars the writer/director himself, Alexander Etseyatse, as the titular Mikel.

Not really sure what to expect here. The trailer below could be much stronger, tighter; shorter, less music, more dialogue. Although Alexander states that this is just a teaser, with the official trailer coming soon!

But there's enough in it to peak my curiosity, so I'll check it out for myself when it screens on Labor Day - Monday Sept. 5th at 3 PM.

By the way, if you're in NYC and interested in the Hell's Kitchen Film Festival, click HERE for their full lineup.

Watch the trailer below:
