🌴 LOS ANGELES: Sprinter is playing at the Pan African Film & Arts Festival Sat, Feb 9th at 6:45pm and Sat, Feb 16th at 8:50am, where it is in competition for a jury award.

🎬 Synopsis: Akeem Sharp is set to be the next big thing in Jamaican athletics—not for nothing are they calling the dreadlocked teenage runner the Rasta Rocket. His older brother Germaine, once a promising track-and-field athlete himself and now involved in various shady schemes, is soon on the scene, looking to insinuate himself into Akeem’s life and manipulate his career. With the added burden of an unstable father at home, Akeem is hoping his meteoric rise will take him out of Jamaica and to the United States, where his mother has lived as an illegal migrant for over a decade. A highly accomplished, supremely entertaining drama.

🎭 Cast: Lorraine Toussaint, David Alan Grier, Bryshere Gray - Yazz The Greatest, Usain Bolt, Shantol Jackson, Dale Elliott, Dennis Titus, Kadeem Wilson.
