ComingSoon.net is debuting the exclusive trailer and key art from the drama movie Good Funk, written and directed by Adam Kritzer. The film is the product of an unprecedented film training and visual literacy program that recruited young Brooklynites to learn filmmaking craft, share their stories, and collaborate for pay on a feature film production. The result is a portrait of love enduring and a testament to discovering family in unexpected places.
Set in Red Hook, a Brooklyn neighborhood on the verge of gentrification, Good Funk tells the story of three generations of citizens, Afro-Caribbean immigrants, whose lives intersect through acts of kindness both big and small. The polyrhythmic narrative is as much a living, breathing document of a community as it is a touching collection of moments in the lives of its inhabitants—cinematic instances that may initially seem elusive in intent but coalesce into a poignant, meaningful cadence.
Check out the exclusive trailer below along with the key art:
Good Funk stars Leonay Shepherd, Kalae Nouveau, Larry Fessenden (Habit, Wendigo, The Dead Don’t Die), Brandy Burre (The Wire, Perfect Poison, Slash), Cedric Cannon (FBI, Moon and Sun), Dina Shihabi (Daredevil, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan), Sandra Reaves-Phillips (‘Round Midnight, Lean on Me, Law & Order), Sameerah Luqmaan-Harris (Sharp Objects, Room 104), and William Nadylam (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald).
The movie was produced by Kritzer (Lace Crater) and Harrison Atkins (Easy) and is the winner of the Harlem Spotlight for Best Feature at the 2016 Harlem International Film Festival.
