“VOD Movies to Watch This Summer”: Soulidifly Productions, in partnership with Freestyle Digital Media, will release the feature-length film 1 Angry Black Man, available to audiences everywhere on DVD and on-demand starting June 5, 2020. View the trailer here:
Brief Synopsis: 1 Angry Black Man tells the story of Mike Anderson, a senior at a New England liberal arts college. After an erroneous arrest for a crime he did not commit, Mike’s story transitions to a day on his college campus, where as he heads to his African-American literature class, he continues to grapple with his unconscionable arrest.
Mike’s emotions threaten to boil over during a class discussion that scrutinizes several prolific authors and activists, from James Baldwin to Zora Neale Hurston. The film becomes an existential conversation among college intellectuals about gender dynamics, racism, and class, as well as an empirical study of the works of four iconic Black writers. It reveals boundary-pushing conversations college students are having today.
The film features Miguel A. Núñez, Jr. (“Life”), Amanda Jane Stern (“Amish Witches: The True Story of Holmes County”), Tim Moriarty (“Manifest”), Ramon Nuñez (“New Amsterdam,” “Bull”), Daphne Danielle (upcoming “God The Worm”) and introduces Keith Stone as Mike.
1 Angry Black Man has won several awards and has been featured at multiple film festivals.
Its timely release coincides with college students graduating – and undergrads entering summer breaks. Combined with movie theaters temporarily closed due to COVID-19, you should watch this film when it becomes available.
