SUPERBLY kicks off American Black Film Festival in Miami 6/13/18

Superfly kicks off American Black Film Festival on June 13 on South Beach log on to for all the details.

The remake, helmed by Director X and starring Trevor Jackson, is set to rock the slick world of Atlanta where Youngblood Priest rumbles the streets and swaps his cash for crypto. A hustler since age 11, his transactions are large – over $33 million – so he’s no two-bit day trader. Rims, shades, pole dancing, music thumping, bling and cars. The millennial treatment of the blaxploitation classic that immortalized bikini-fro-hoop chicks and gangster leans looks drizzled in God’s Plan and Hotline Bling Director X’s chutzpah. He knows how to marry the camera with the man to deliver a 2018 SuperFly dude who leaps right off the screen and into the streets. All hustle. No shame. #SuperFly

“We are thrilled ‘Superfly’ will be the opening night film at the 2018 ABFF,” CEO Jeff Friday said. “For many, the title resonates as a cultural touchstone, not only for the look and style of the film itself, but also for Curtis Mayfield’s legendary soundtrack, and for its place in history. ‘Superfly’ is one of the few films of its era that featured African-American characters with agency and power.  In bringing ‘Superfly’ to a new generation, Director X has transitioned a timeless classic into a modern day, entertaining film that will be enjoyed by all.”
