It was one of several projects Tambay included on his Sundance 2012 Film Festival predictions list, although it didn't debut at that festival.

But Joshua Sanchez's indie drama Four, an adaptation on an off-Broadway play by Christopher Shinn, will make its world premiere at the upcoming Los Angeles Film Festival next month.

Wendell Pierce of The Wire fame, stars in it, alongside Aja Naomi King, Emory Cohen, E.J. Bonilla and Yolanda Ross.

The film's script was both a 2007 Tribeca All Access award recipient, and a 2008 No Borders Independent Film Week selection, with a synopsis that reads:

On the 4th of July in Hartford, CT, June, a 16-year-old white boy, meets up with Joe, a closeted, married black man he met on the Internet. On the same night, in the same city, the black man's 16-year-old daughter Abigayle, agrees to go out with Dexter, a white 20-year-old low-level drug dealer. In and around the city, on the American night of Independence, these 2 couples get to know each other, moving from strangers to intimates. In lonely landscapes of movie theaters, fast food restaurants, darkened churches and public parks, they discover the limits of desire and the possibilities of transcendence. Four juxtaposes the relationships of the 2 couples struggling with their desires and demons.

Wendell Pierce stars as Joe; Aja Naomi King is his daughter Abigayle; Emory Cohen is June, the teenage white boy; E.J. Bonilla plays Dexter; and Yolonda Ross plays Wendell's wife.

Like others have already said, this will probably be a heavily-debated film especially here on S&A, when most of us get to see it.

You're also encouraged to read THIS indieWIRE Profile to learn more about director Sanchez's stylistic influences and more.

The filmmakers are trying to raise funds to get them to and from the festival, as the film begins its festival circuit travels. They are trying to raise $5,000 with 26 days left to go. So if you're intrigued by the project, and would like to assist, click HERE to go to its Kickstarter page and make your contribution.

A new teaser has surfaced which gives us out first good look at the film. Watch it now:
