I feel so lucky being able to participate at the 2014 Pan African Film Festival taking place this week Thursday, Aug 7 through Sunday, Aug, 10th at the historic Plaza Theatre in Atlanta, GA. Thursday night, I attended opening night with Award winning actor and activist Danny Glover in Deon Taylor’s ‘Supremacy’.
Based on a true story. On the day he is paroled from prison, a white supremacist and his ruthless girlfriend kill a cop. While authorities cordon off the neighborhood, the couple breaks into a house and takes a black family hostage. Over a long night of terror, a subtle psychological struggle ensues between the family patriarch, an ornery ex-con himself, and the convict as the patriarch must rely on his wit and understanding of the racist mind to find a plan to free his family, but not before he confronts his own brand of bigotry and anger. Stars Danny Glover, Joe Anderson, Dawn Olivieri , Derek Luke, Evan Ross, Lela Rochon, Mahershala Ali and Anson Mount.

The red carpet was filled with team members and supporters of the film including Danny Glover and Deon Taylor. I wasn’t able to stay for the screening but heard it was thought provoking and intense. Can’t wait to watch as Danny Glover is one of my favorite actors. Congrats to team and sending a special thanks to iWonderMedia Group for the invite!
