Restless City
The story of a young man surviving on the fringes of New York City, where music is his passion, life is a hustle, and falling in love is his greatest risk.

Please note: this film contains some mature content.

"In this intense twist on the American Dream, director Andrew Dosunmu vividly captures the pulsating dynamic of New York city's pan-African community, a robust aggregation that subsists amid an often hostile foreign environment. "Restless City" is a mesmerizing glimpse into a culture and community that is only superficially seen by indifferent New Yorkers."
- Duane Byrge, The Hollywood Reporter

"There are several upcoming releases of black films that prioritize authenticity and artistic integrity and insist on speaking to the core of the human spirit. The gorgeous Restless City, directed by fashion photographer Andrew Dosunmu, accomplishes this and elegantly so. The film tells the story of Djbril, a young Senegalese man who hustles along Canal Street in Manhattan amid a community of immigrants from all over Africa trying to get by in America. Like many who move to New York in search of their dreams, he is much more than the sum of his daily grind. He is an aesthete, a gentleman, and most importantly, a singer -- it's just that the mundaneness of survival has taken priority above the full expression of his art. Meeting the lovely Trini, a prostitute who works for one of his merchandisers, lights a fire under Djibril, and he gains a renewed interest in pushing his life and ambition forward."
- Danielle Jackson, The Huffington Post
