Closing Night Presentation:
MORRIS FROM AMERICA
directed by Chad Hartigan
USA/Germany, 2016, English/German, 91 minutes
Saturday, April 9, 2016, 7:30 PM — Plaza Theatre, Main
A heartwarming and crowd-pleasing coming-of-age comedy with a unique spin, “Morris from America” centers on Morris Gentry (Markees Christmas, in an incredible breakout performance), a 13-year-old who has just relocated with his single father, Curtis (Craig Robinson), to Heidelberg, Germany. Morris, who fancies himself the next Notorious B.I.G., is a complete fish-out-of-water—a budding hip-hop star in an EDM world. To complicate matters further, Morris quickly falls hard for his cool, rebellious, 15-year-old classmate Katrin. Morris sets out against all odds to take the hip-hop world by storm and win the girl of his dreams.
Director/Writer Chad Hartigan scheduled to attend. Hartigan acts in #ATLFF film "Hunky Dory," screening Saturday, April 9th.
