Langston Hughes African American Film Festival OPENING NIGHT Feat The Last Fall
Opening night will feature Matthew Cherry's provocative film, The Last Fall starring Lance Gross and Nichole Beharie. A post screening discussion and reception will be part of the opening night festivities. Audiences will be the first to experience the multi-million dollar renovated facility, featuring newly appointed theater various building upgrades including an artist residency space.

Cherry will be joining the fest fresh off his recent world premiere screening at South by Southwest, where it received positive reviews from local press:

Professional football is the American dream. Boys grow up lusting for the fame, the glory, the ladies, the cash. But the reality is uglier: Most who do make it to the big dance last only a handful of seasons after earning journeyman pay and banging up their bodies. Director Matthew A. Cherry knocked around the NFL for a few years before turning to filmmaking, first as a production assistant on TV's Girlfriends. His debut feature is a personal one about admitting the dream is over and trying to resuscitate a life. An almost all African-American cast impresses, particularly lead actor Lance Gross (Tyler Perry's House of Payne) who tries to win back his high school sweetheart and his family. This coming-of-age tale delivers a very human dose of sports reality.
