Shadow and Act has the exclusive trailer debut for the new film, 1 Angry Black Man. 

Directed by Menelek Lumumba, it was produced and shot by Hans Charles in his narrative feature debut.

Charles recently shot Mr. SOUL! and Ava DuVernay’s 13th. 

Here’s the official synopsis: Mike Anderson is a senior undergrad and eight weeks away from graduation at Frost College, a quintessential New-England liberal arts school. And on this particular day he has his African-American Literature class with his favorite professor.  But today, Mike is feeling sad. He’s feeling isolated. He’s feeling Angry. Taking place in real time, “1 Angry Black Man,” provides a voyeuristic view of the difficult conversations young people engage in as they try to navigate the society and current climate in which they live. Drawing from the intellect of master writers such as James Baldwin, Zora Neale Hurston, and Ta-Nehisi Coates, they search for modern solutions to bridge the divide, uncover new questions, and push political boundaries, forcing each other to reckon with the truths they keep hidden in the dark.

1 Angry Black Man has it’s world premiere today at Blackstar Film Festival! For more information follow the film @1angryblackman on Facebook.
