'They Die By Dawn'

Jeymes Samuel's star studded 51-minute film based on the true lives of African American cowboys is headed to Philadelphia. 

Regular readers of this site will be acquainted with the project, which premiered at film festivals in 2013. We're still awaiting word on an official release, but in the mean time Philly residents can see it tomorrow night. 

Reelblack will present They Die By Dawn on Tuesday, February 25 at International House. Also on the bill are short films Nostalgia by Johnnie Hobbs III and Underground Kings by Skye Dennis.

Starring Giancarlo Esposito, Michael K Williams, Jesse Williams, Erykah Badu, Nate Parker, Bokeem Woodbine and Rosario Dawson, They Die By Dawn follows a tense card game over an $80,000 prize, which ultimately leads to a showdown.

    Saaaay... just WAIT a second, here. JUST WAIT, DAMMITT! I thought you said this was STAR-STUDDED. Sir, I believe you have misrepresented your claim. Good day to YOU, then.

    @Lamont Dorrell, Thanks, your words are my words.

    Really? At the center of the poster is Erykah Badu! So she isn't a "true pure black sista"?
    Or is it that you don't recognise her as one?

    What are you talking here, complexion?

    I can't wait to see this movie! Grow up and cease with the self hate!
