A double-shot of Tangi Miller today (see my earlier post on a romcom she stars in opposite Malik Yoba, titled My Girlfriend's Back). Remember her from Felicity many moons ago?

This one, titled Guardian Of Eden, like the previous, will also be screening at the African Diaspora Film Festival in Chicago this weekend. It'll be its world premiere actually. This one co-stars Persia White (remember her from Girlfriends?), and David Ramsey, who's appeared in a bunch of things - most recently, Mother And Child.

Its synopsis reads: "Michael Raynar (Ramsey) is in love with his young wife and they are very happy together as well as expecting their first child. This story should end with "happily ever after" but after he meets Kimmy Sardell (Miller), he goes against his better judgment, and their one-night stand leads to irrevocable consequences."

I should note that this title, and the other profiled earlier today, are both produced by Tangi Miller. I took a look at her IMDB page and noticed that she's actually been producing (and executive producing) a bit lately, all films she's starred in as well, over the last 4 years, with 4 feature films made since 2007. So, clearly she's working to package and produce projects for herself to star in.

Thus far, I haven't been particularly impressed with any of the trailers I've seen, and I'm not sure how each of these films has done in the marketplace - those that have actually been released. But I think her efforts are worth highlighting, and watching from here on.

Below is the campy trailer for Guardian Of Eden:
