Description

The film stars Clifton Powell, Lamman Rucker, Traci Braxton and Tasha Cobbs. Celebrating diversity, AAWIC special screening program was kicked off last year with the pre-25th Anniversary screening of “Just Another Girl on the I.R.T.,” (Official Sundance selection) by Cinematic Iconic Director, Leslie Harris (Sundance Festival Jury Prize winner).

About Sinners Wanted:

Leo Shepherd, a young vibrant minister from Macon, Georgia, relocates to Washington, DC, for a opportunity to pastor Grace Community Church. On the first night of his installment he meets a prostitute named Ginger Clementine known as GiGi. Ironically, Leo is immediately attracted to her as she reminds him of his mother. They begin to grow closer and their feelings develop. The church finds out about the relationship and immediately has concerns about how detrimental this woman is for the church’s image. Despite their demands and her troubled past, Leo continues to pursue GiGi, falling deeply in love until he asks for her hand in marriage. Their holy union turns out to be catastrophic and reveals both Leo’s and GiGi’s past.

The movie screening will include thought provoking conversations through live Q & A along with a networking party after the screening.

Directed and Written by The Jenkins Brothers ( Joshua and Jimmy Jenkins), produced by Kia and Gregory Freeman & Grammy Nominated Gospel Artist Anthony Brown, Associate Produced by James Wallace of World Bookings, and Executive Produced by Co-Founder of Mega Mind Media Tressa Azarel Smallwood. This movie is guaranteed to captivate audiences with its relatable characters, dramatic turns and true to life plot points.

The event sponsors are GRC & Associates LLC, Urban Movie Channel, Keepin it Real with Shania, Mst Arts Entertainments, Multiplex 22, Landing tracts for advanced living, and Media Sponsor, Sapphire Emerald Magazine.
