The African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement’s (AFFRM) multi platform label, Array, has announced “Big Words” as their sixth movie acquisition. The film has screened at Frameline Film Festival as well as the Slamdance festival favorite. This is the first feature for Neil Drumming, who is a former Entertainment Weekly writer. Drumming is the talented writer, director and producer of the film. Some of the films stars are Southland‘s Dorian Missick along with America’s Next Top Model‘s Yaya Alafia to name a few.
Set in Brooklyn on the eve of President Obama’s history-making election, three former members of a once promising hip-hop crew cross paths again to discover that some things never change. Former frontman John, once known as Big Words, is now a working class guy who raps only to himself. James is a publicist living with his boyfriend, far removed from the days when he rhymed about getting girls. While DJ Malik still spins records with a longing for the glory days. Together again, the friends reckon with dreams deferred and dreams yet to come.
