Event description

Description

The Virginia Diasporic Communities Film Festival (VADCFF) is hosting a screening of SPRINTER, a powerful and triumphant award-winning Jamaican film.

***This film contains mature scenes not suitable for children. Viewer discretion is advised.***

Sprinter poster

SPRINTER tells the story of Akeem Sharp (Dale Elliott), who is set to be Jamaica’s next big track-and-field sensation. Akeem hopes a rise in the track and field world will take him to the U.S. to reunite him with his mother (Lorraine Toussaint, Orange is the New Black), who has supported the family while living as an illegal resident for over a decade. But Akeem’s rising star is weighed down by turmoil at home: a volatile father, and an unruly older brother who insinuates himself into Akeem’s career as a means of escaping – or perhaps enhancing – his scam artist hustle. Not only does Akeem have to prove to himself and everyone that he can succeed, but also overcome the struggles that may ultimately bring him down. The film also stars Kadeem Wilson (Ghett’ A Life), Dennis Titus (The Mighty Quinn), Shantol Jackson (Yardie), Bryshere Y. Gray (Empire), and David Alan Grier (In Living Color) with songs by Grammy Award winning artist NE-YO and Jamaican dancehall performer Shenseea. Executive produced by Jada and Will Smith along with NBA Veteran and NBA Personality Richard Jefferson.

The film will only be shown if we pre-sell enough tickets. Help make our screening happen by reserving your tickets now before our SEPTEMBER 26 deadline. We only need to pre-sell 39 more! Reserve your tickets!
