How do you get people talking about racism? How about switching up the narrative, this is the premise of the brand new film CRACKA which stars Hakeem Kae-Kazim (Hotel Rawanda, King Kong), Lorenzo Antonucci (Ballers, Paradise City), Mike Stone and rapper Saigon (Entourage). CRACKA shares a story of a present-day white supremacist (Lorenzo Antonucci) who is mysteriously transported back into an alternate past where African Americans rule the land and whites are enslaved.
When Hakeem Kae-Kazim stars graces the screen you know he will bring the character to life and he does this so well playing the slave master.
The director Director Dale Resteghini was Inspired to make the film by his disgust in the rise of white supremacy within the last few years.
We love this film and am sure you will too, CRACKA challenges racism narrative and gets people talking!
Full of painfully rich, historical broad strokes of history, CRACKA drops us into the black and white mystique of slavery, with hopes to strengthen the outlook of pointless bigotry that is still haunting us today, 401 years later.
Co-writer Kevin D. Young, gives an absolutely brutally honest, in-depth look and new meaning to life, love, liberty, and justice for all. By using present day situations, blending daily headlines and adding a historical twist, the project is simply holding up a mirror for others to accept the history of America then, and the state of America now.
