Andrew Dosunmu‘s Restless City:
Djibril is a young African immigrant who’s life can only go upward. He has endured many travails by the time he arrives in New York. When he has lived in the City for a while he begins to believe that he can achieve his ample dreams. He wants to be a musician, a pop star and one day return to Africa where his mother and father still toil for a meager living.
The film was picked up by AFFRM, who will open the movie in limited theatrical release in New York, L.A. and Atlanta on April 27th 2012, with plans to expand to five additional cities on May 4th.
