A Call to Action - Ava DuVernay and AFFRM

A love story partially inspired by the 1978 Green Bay Massacre, which resulted from the contentious political rivalry between Michael Manley and Edward Seaga, Storm Saulter’s debut probes the culture of political violence in Jamaica. Ricky (Sheldon Shepherd) and Kamala (Sky Nicole Grey) play a dangerous game as they embark on a relationship despite their rivaling neighborhood allegiances. Part of a new wave of Caribbean cinema, Better Mus’ Come played to packed houses in Jamaica and won Best Picture at the Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados International Film Festivals. In 2013, Better Mus’ Come was selected by Ava DuVernay to launch AFFRM’s new multi-platform distribution label, ARRAY. (2K DCP. 104 min. Not Rated.)
