ABFF '13 Preview: Young Man Returns from College in 'The Heart of Summer'

nullThe Heart of Summer, written by Tedric Huff and Mark Bridges and directed by Adrien Allen (a story by Ray Balgrove), will make its world premiere at the American Black Film Festival next Sunday.

The drama is described as “a heartwarming story of family, love, and faith that follows the soulful

journey of a young man returning home from college and facing who he

was, and who he is to become.

Filmed in South Florida, Summer, billed as a romantic drama, also focuses on a Caribbean American father, played by Paul Campbell (Shottas, Dancehall Queen), who is over-protective of his daughter. Campbell also serves as producer in the film.

The Heart of Summer, which also stars Lex Kelly-Meade and Tesh Humphries, is executive produced by Balgrove, Allen and Vivienne Chance.

The trailer isn’t embeddable on this site, but you can watch it over at the film’s website HERE.
