Haven't heard anything about this project since early announcements last summer/fall; I keep forgetting to periodically check up on it actually.

I doubt an intro to Ava DuVernay and her next project (Middle Of Nowhere) are really necessary at this point - especially if you've been a reader of this site in recent months.

As already reported, it'll be out in the USA on July 29th! I still haven't seen it yet, despite all the preview screenings that have taken place in the last few weeks. No time. But I hope to see it before July 29th, so I can share my own thoughts. Thus far, all my usual trusted sources who have seen the film praise it heavily! So, my expectations are high! Though, maybe I should lower them a bit.

I first profiled this film in March on the old site; at the time, I couldn't find an official synopsis, so wasn't entirely sure what it was about; although I did post a teaser trailer that gave us some idea - a teaser that's since been taking down, but, thankfully, it was replaced with a new one, which I embedded below.

A film I profiled over a month ago was picked up for international distribution by Other Angle Pictures, a Paris-based company; a French time travel/slavery comedy titled Case Départ, which I understand translates as Return To The Start (or Beginning).

I don't think this movie needs much of an intro around here. We've written and talked about it enough times. But if you're just joining us, and you've never heard of it, I'd recommend you search the current (and old) site for previous posts on it.
