The African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement to screen 'Restless City' 4/27 at Phipps Plaza | Arts & Culture
ATLANTA -- (submitted by Terri Vismale-Morris) AFFRM, the African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement, will open its third film, RESTLESS CITY, in Atlanta this Friday, April 27 at AMC Phipps Plaza.
Filmmaker Andrew Dosunmu's stunning feature directorial debut was an Official Selection at 2011 Sundance Film Festival in the NEXT category, and tells the story of an African immigrant surviving on the fringes of New York City where music is his passion, life is a hustle, and falling in love is his greatest risk.
Variety explained, "The extraordinarily beautiful "Restless City" achieves revelation on two tiers -- in the kinetic landscape of the city itself and in the world of Senegalese immigrants, whose struggle evolves just beneath the sightlines of the average New Yorker. Visually, it's euphoric." While The Hollywood Reporter called the film, "a stunning, intense twist on the American Dream."
