WHAT: Sunrason Films, Johnny Blacks Entertainment, and O-Don, in collaboration with the Caribbean Cultual Theatre present a special media screening of Director Steve “Tehut Nine” McAlpin’s latest film ‘What Goes Around.’ Giving a brand new take on the age old adage ‘you reap what you sow,’ this comedic drama takes through the ups and downs of romance and relationships, while educating about HIV/AIDS prevention.
Starring New York sound system selector Nohard “Noah” Grant ,who won acclaim for his portrayal of Son-Son, in Bashment: the Fork in the Road, Dancehall artist Flippa Mafia, Sakina Samuda, and Kim Goss, ‘What Goes Around’ is a humorously drama-filled trek through the lives of a conniving womanizer, his two unlucky-in-love sons, and a host of colorful characters that get trapped in the often unforgiving cycle of  love. Against the backdrop of Southern Florida’s vibrant Caribbean-American music scene, the film features guest appearances by Dancehall superstar Mavado, accomplished actor and artist KC Jockey, popular sound system selector Supa Twitch, famous Jamaican dancer Ding Dong, and late Dancehall artist Rraw Dawg.
McAlpin, who won great acclaim with 2007’s gritty urban tale Bashment: The Fork in the Road, decided to move away from making films targeting primarily Caribbean audiences, and instead opted to make a film that truly shows the depth and breadth of Caribbean culture on American society, and the global impact of HIV/AIDS on communities of color around the world.
The event will also feature an excerpt from the play “One of Our Sons is Missing,” a stage drama documenting the impact of HIV/AIDS on the Caribbean, performed by the Caribbean Cultural Theatre.
WHEN: Wednesday, September 17th
Reception at 6:30pm Screening Starts at 7pm
WHERE: Art New York’s South Oxford Space
138 South Oxford Street
(betw. Atlantic Avenue and Hanson Place in Downtown Brooklyn)
