Barbadian racial thriller “Vigilante – the Crossing” impresses parts of USA’s Hollywood
The international premiere of Bajan movie “Vigilante – The Crossing” was a rousing success when it recently screened for the first time as an “Official Selection” of the Pan African Film Festival (PAFF) in Los Angeles California. PAFF is the largest and most prestigious African Film Festival in the US. The racially charged action drama was well received by the sold out audience.
Cast members who attended were also very impressive in their glamorous outfits when they took to the Red Carpet event which preceded the screening.
Step By Step Producers Dave and Marcia Weekes led the Bajan delegation which included Kirk Brown, Malissa Alanna, Claudette Wadman, Adrian Green, David Gill, Danny & Julie Chalbaud, Shawn Hercules and the one and only RPB.
The Crème de la Crème came out to support the film including Petra Roach, chief of the New York Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. office, Honorary Consuls to Jamaica and Belize, Barbados LA Association Presidents Martin and Marcelle Greenidge and Rev. Louis Chase among many Bajan supporters.
The Vigilante members also got to rub shoulders with Hollywood notables such Larry & Luisa Dunn former Musical Director of Earth Wind & Fire, Ray Charles Jr, DeMonica Santiago and Joyce Tolbert of R&B sensation The Good Girls, Barbadian Hollywood actor Ty Hodges and Hollywood magnate and former BET host, April Sutton among others.
Kirk Brown, Adrian Green, Malissa Alanna and RPB who appear in the film rocked the packed after-party to close off this historic night and a most memorable occasion for Barbados and its brand.
All who attended agreed it was a night to remember as an arm of Caribbean Culture gained prominence in the Mecca of the film industry – Hollywood.
