BENNY BOOM and BRYAN “BIRDMAN” WILLIAMS’ new movie, TAZMANIAN DEVIL, has been selected to screen at the 2020 American Black Film Festival (ABFF), August 21-30. The duo serves as Executive Producers of the movie, written and directed by rising filmmaker SOLOMON ONITA, JR. Tazmanian Devil stars Independent Spirit Award-winning actor ABRAHAM ATTAH (Beasts of No Nation and Spider-Man: Homecoming), NTARE GUMA MBAHO MWINE (The Chi, Queen of Katwe and Treme), ADEPERO ODUYE (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Central Park Five, 12 Years a Slave and Pariah) and KWESI BOAKYE (Claws, Flight and The Amazing World of Gumball).

Tazmanian Devil is the coming of age tale of a 19-year-old Nigerian immigrant (Attah) who, after moving to the US, struggles to bond with his estranged father (Mwine) who abandoned him and his mother (Oduye), in Nigeria, to chase his own calling of becoming a missionary. When he finds acceptance in his process of joining a college fraternity, its challenged by his strict and religious father, leaving him searching for his own moral ground.    

Tazmanian Devil was filmed in several cities throughout Texas, including Marshall, where one of the state’s handful of HBCUs (Historical Black College and University), Wiley College, is located. Wiley is the production home of Denzel Washington and Oprah Winfrey’s award-winning movie, The Great Debaters, which starred Denzel Washington, Forest Whitaker, Nate Parker and Jurnee Smollett. The Tazmanian Devil production teamed up with Wiley’s Nate Parker Film and Theatre Conservatory department and allowed students to work on the Tazmanian Devil production to gain film experience and academic credit.
