Sudz Sutherland's drama Home Again, which stars Tatyana Ali, Lyriq Bent, Stephan James, Richard Chevolleau, C.C.H. Pounder, and Fefe Dobson, will make its USA premiere at this year's Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles, next month.
It's worth noting that this will be the film's first public screening since its Toronto International Film Festival debut last Septmber, so those of you who'll be attending the PAFF next month should consider yourselves lucky! Here's your chance to check it out!
Home Again tells the story of three young people deported home to Jamaica after being raised abroad since infancy. Once landed in Kingston and without a compass of any kind, each of the characters embarks on a journey that pushes their endurance beyond measure and forces them to discover who they truly are. On the most fundamental level, Home Again asks the question, How would you survive?
The Canadian-produced feature, Sudz's second, was shot on location in Trinidad, Jamaica and Canada, earlier last year, and is described as "a searing drama in the vein of City of God."
Entertainment One has distribution rights to the film, with co-production partners The National Film Board and with the participation of Telefilm Canada, and the Harold Greenberg Fund.
PAFF 2013 is set to take place at the new Rave Cinemas Baldwin Hills 15 at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza in Los Angeles, and will kick off festivities with a star-studded Opening Night Gala on Thursday, February 7, 2013 at the Rave Cinemas Baldwin Hills 15 theatre.
