The African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement (AFFRM) is pleased to announce the premier of Restless City. This independent film 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. The film opens this Friday in select theaters in New York City, Los Angeles, and Atlanta.
Andrew Dosunmu, executive director of Restless City, explains, “I wanted to tell the story of the taxi driver, the guy who works in the back kitchen, the guy who sells the CDs on the street. What’s their story? I really wanted to document that.”
Nigerian-born Dosunmu worked previously as photographer for Paper, Fader, and Vibe magazines. He has also directed music videos for Common, Kelis, Tracy Chapman, and Maxwell, and has worked with Yves Saint Laurent.
Now a filmmaker, Dosunmu is eager to begin his career as an executive director. Check out tickets and showtimes for Restless City, which opens Friday, April 27, at www.affrm.com.
