AFFRM's ARRAY Will Release Neil Drumming's Nostalgic 'Big Words' July 19 + New Poster

null

AFFRM’s multi-platform distribution label ARRAY has announced that it will release Neil Drumming’s indie dramedy charmer Big Words in New York City and Los Angeles on July 19, which will be followed by a theatrical tour via AFFRM partners: Imagenation, Urbanworld Film Festival, BronzeLens Film Festival, ReelBlack Film Series, Langston Hughes Film Festival, Howard University’s Parallel Film Collective and Houston Museum of African-American Culture. 

The announcement comes just over a month after the distribution house acquired all US distribution rights to the Slamdance 2013 Official Selection.

The Brooklyn-set Big Words centers on members of a once-promising hip-hop group, now in their late 30’s, struggling with regret, disappointment and change, set against the backdrop of Election Night, 2008 – when Barack Obama was elected.

Joining Dorian Missick in front of the camera are Yaya AlafiaGbenga AkinnagbeDarien Sills-EvansZachary Booth and Jean Grae.

Neil has created a poignant study of black masculinity and friendship set against the beauty of hip hop and the community it can foster.  We’re very pleased to work with this exciting new writer/director to make sure BIG WORDS finds its audience,” said ARRAY’s Managing Director Tilane Jones.

Writer/director Neil Drumming added, I can’t think of a more ideal situation for us than to release BIG WORDS under the AFFRM banner. I’ve long admired Ava DuVernay as both an artist and a champion of independent film. I’m incredibly proud that AFFRM has recognized the potential of this film, and I can’t wait for audiences to see what my wonderful crew and I have accomplished.

Accompanying today’s news is the debut of the film’s release poster, which you’ll find embedded below:
