March 15th, 2013 marks the day that the African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement’s (AFFRM) new multi-platform label Array releases its first film BETTER MUS’ COME in Los Angeles at the Downtown Independent located at 251 S. Main Street (DTLA). The film is written and directed by Jamaican-born independent filmmaker Storm Saulter.
Set in an era of political unrest during the late 1970’s, BETTER MUS’ COME is a love story set to the rhythm of a decade where violence and survival was paramount. The historic Green Bay Massacre was a time in Jamaican when political factions took to the streets and enlisted rival gangs to disrupt the political process causing chaos and war within the country. The film tells the story from the perspective of a young leader in the crossroads of providing for his son and community, all while falling in love with a women that would otherwise be taboo.
As a first effort by Storm Saulter, known for his work with Little X in countless American music videos, BETTER MUS’ COME has received accolades and honors from multiple film festivals. Winning for Best Feature Awards at Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival and Bahamas Intl Film Festival, Best Director Award at Pan-African Film Festival and Best Actor Award at American Black Film Festival, the film has screened at Toronto International Film Festival, Film Society of Lincoln Center and British Film Institute.
BETTER MUS’ COME premieres in Los Angeles on Friday, March 15th, 2013 and will have showtimes throughout the week at Downtown Independent, 251 S. Main Street, Los Angeles CA. For more information or to purchase tickets please visit: Downtown Independent and AFFRM
