Elevate

Opens Friday, Oct 21, 2011 Synopsis: Founded in part by Amadou Gallo Fall, who works in scouting and international affairs for the NBA's Dallas Mavericks, the Seeds Academy is an unusual school in Senegal that recruits students based on both their academic abilities and their athletic skills.

Restless City

Opens Friday, Apr 27, 2012 Synopsis: The lives of African immigrants making their way on the rough and tumble streets of New York City inspired this independent drama. Djibril (Sy Alassane) is a 21-year-old man who has recently left Senegal for a new life in Manhattan. While Djibril once pursued a career as a musician, in New York he's too busy scouring the city for a job and keeping himself afloat to devote much time to his art. As sidetracked as Djibril may be, he can't help but notice Trini (Sky Grey), a beautiful fellow immigrant who lives in his neighborhood, and the two find themselves falling in love. However, Trini makes her living as a streetwalker, and she is currently under the thumb of Bekay (Anthony Okungbowa), a mean-spirited pimp and loan shark; Djibril wants to take Trini away from Bekay so they can find happiness together, but this is a dangerous and difficult task. Restless City was the first feature film from writer and director Andrew Dosunmu; the film was an official selection at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi Cast: Danai Gurira, Anthony Okungbowa, Sy Alassane, Sky Grey, Babs Olusanmokun Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review
