Folks like to complain about the lack of Black cinema with depth. And in comes, “Restless City.” Distributed by AFFRM (African American Film Festival Releasing Movement), an organization dedicated to distributing black movies, “Restless City” tells the story of an African immigrant trying to make it in America. How to describe it? The African version of “Slumdog Millionaire” in Harlem. Yup. People often complain about not seeing enough films featuring black faces and depth. I like to say, “Don’t just talk about it, be about it.” And go check “Restless City.” In select NY, LA, & ATL theaters this weekend, opening Friday, April 27.

Here’s a clip, shot by The Organization of Black Screenwriters, featuring me and filmmaker friend, Tamika Lamison, discussing “Restless City” after a tastemaker screening a few weeks ago, in LA, hosted by AFFRM founder Ava DuVernay. CLICK HERE:
