XLrator Media has set an April 21st theatrical and an April 25th VOD release for French writer/director Luc Annest’s independent comedy feature “Nola Circus,” which chronicles the interconnected lives of people living in a black neighborhood in a town on the Mississippi River, with a rivalry between two barber shops facing each other on the main street as the key setting. On one side there is Will, a black hairdresser who regularly preaches against racial injustices while also having a secret affair with Nola, a young white woman who dreams of a career on Broadway. On the other side, there is Marvin, a well known sex addict who’s having a passionate affair with Karen, a small time pot dealer.
Tension in the over-the-top comedy escalates dramatically one day, sending the lives of the owners, their families, and their friends spiraling out of control.
The film’s ensemble cast includes Vas Blackwood, Dave Davis, Taryn Terrell, Wayne Ricky, Lucius Baston, Robert Catrini, Candice Michele Barley, Martin Bats Bradford, Nicoye Banks and others.
Producers are The Illicit Producers, Nola Circus Production, Highfun (France) and One Million Dollar Film.
XLrator Media has premiered a first USA release trailer for the film, which is embedded below:
