Bastard Son of A Thousand Fathers Is A Real Mutha for Ya-Up for 5 major Awards-2016 Haitian Movie Awards on November 6th ,The John Hancock Hall in Boston, MA.

 The recent viewing, on October 2, 2016,  of Bastard Son of A Thousand Fathers,  directed by Lanre Sarumi, at The Downtown Independent,  filmed like a spider’s web,  with all snared within a  vortex of  lies, swindles , racial “it’s the man against us ism”, made me think of The late soul singer Johnny Guitar Watson’s , “That’s a Real Mutha For Ya”. This movie is  a  was a most twisted deviant tale, including hints at gay gangster love, race relations street cred style, all leveraged by greed, hypocrisy. This  highly energetic, well directed cast made this the closest one can get to real danger, and come back physically unscathed—this is really a glimpse of gangland style, drug- dealer -killer- for -rilla -style- lifestyles -of -the rich -and- dangerous!
In fact   this film, made by Chicago’s Telly Awards  winning production hit making powerhouse, 4 FEATURES FILM,  shears the head off of the suspension of disbelief directive, as it delivers in striking venom -like fashion.  In addition,  it s producer writer explained, ”  This film’s namesake, “Bastard Sons of a Thousand fathers” is the twisted brainchild, the name of a drug created by a doctor, turned sociopath-path. The intensity and strength of this drug causes such a stir in the hood, that brothers and friends turn on each other, as they stock pile and disseminate it.
 Interestingly enough, , this film is pumping more ” than a one hit wonder” through the veins of mass media, as a crime story it is and has the usual suspects within it, much like Boys in The Hood, and Breaking Bad——intense violence, killing and street lingo unchained to the zenith—making this film, in my opinion, a dead ringer to win in five different categories on November 6, 2016, in Boston, MA at  The 4th Annual Motion Picture Alliance of Haiti Film Awards.

 Consequently,  according to producer-actor, Remoh Romeo ” It is truly awesome to have had our film nominated and embraced by The Motion Picture Alliance of Haiti, an entity that champions and holds up Haitian films. And to have had nominations for Best Director, Best Director of Photography, Best movie , Best Screen Play and a nod as Best actor,  reaffirms the noise that is coming from the street —–We feel pretty confident of our chances. We tried to truthfully  show the living conditions of people, and the consequences of living as such, within those environments.”
 The powerful dynamic duo brotherhood  of Remoh Romeo(Hogtown, Lakay), and Tirf Alexius(Chicago, PD, Lakay), along with directors, producer, fellow actors and the  films writer, Lanre Sarumi (Banana Leaves, Critical Nexus), Chad Meyer, Wesley St. Louis, Iris Kohl(Chicago Med) , and Melissa Flores   are doing a great service, not only for action lovers but also for the country of Haiti itself : There have been so many  calamities spewing forth  or hammering  into that natural phenomena problematic area, with either killer Hurricanes or Lethal Earthquakes;  This brother led coalition will be  at the 2016 Haitian  Movie Awards on November 6th ,The John Hancock Hall in Boston, MA., beaming with pride and bestowing their Haitian spirit before the world——–showing that although deeply saddened and traumatized by the recent acts of God via nature in Haiti, it can not keep a good Haitian down.
Similarly, in the brothers 2014 movie, Lakay,  An official 2014 Harlem International Film Festival Selection,  they are shown in Haiti , four years after the earthquake devastation that ravaged that area. The film depicts the tortuous plights of many but the overriding theme was that joy and life and love of life can and will still resurface, showing mankind’s’ propensity to endure hardships  via a faith that things WILL get better and a  beautiful spirit!
 Finally,  one can see that the furor over this picture is well warranted. In fact, there were celebrities at the Bastard première October 6, 2016 such as Vida Ghaffari(Mindy Project), Natasha Blasick,  filmmaker, Thomas Churchill, Ray Laroche, Alexandra Keller, Romana Simon, Lilian Lev, just to name a few and I am sure that they did not come for the Q & A hordoeves; The film is , with a hint at tongue in cheek crazy humor, exciting if nothing  else. I could not get enough of it and I am positive that you will enjoy it. See you at The Haitian version of the Emmys, in Boston, November 6, 2016——– 2016 Haitian  Movie Awards ,The John Hancock Hall, Boston, MA.  Proceeds, according to Joe Williamson Management’s newswire,  will be donated dually  at a rate of one dollar for every ticket sold  to  i2BELIEVE, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in Haiti,  and a dollar  via the filmmakers,  for every digital sale of Bastard Son of A Thousand Fathers—a street drug which btw means quite a few drugs including heroine, and  crack,  and sweets like chocolate and hibiscus—‘ A one shot wonder!”

I was born in Fountainbleu in Paris France to an army family. My father ,Ruben Smith, and my mother Nancy Smith, worked for the Army and as a school teacher in France, respectively.We are originally from the South. My father’s people from Misissippi and Alabama and my mom’s from South Carolina. I am an avid sports fan and I attended and played sports----football, wresting, and track----- at Bishop England High School, in Charleston, South Carolina; my mom chose both a Catholic high school and an elementary school, Immaculate Conception, for my sister and I. Initially, I wasted a lot of time in school pursuing sports and partying but nevertheless,I went to the College of Charleston, The University of South Carolina, where I majored in Journalism, Advertising and Public Relations, with a minor in Theatre and Speech. I finally graduated from The University of Redlands, in Redlands, CA with a degree in business management. I managed to get into SAG-AFTRA, mostly as an extra, but I have done an occasional speaking stint here and there—CD-ROMs, experimental and industrial films, and voice overs in radio. My most recent endeavor was playing a doctor on "Grey's Anatomy". I like horror, love, thrillers, and I like to read. Weightliftingand jogging are some of my hobbies also. Interestingly enough, my family prepared me for a life on the move, as I have been to every state in The USA except for Alaska and Hawaii. I have an older sister who chose the teaching profession and is doing quite fine. What was i like as a child? Well I tend to think that I existed and flourished within "a culture of hate"--------however South Carolina has ceased and desisted with both "The jim Crow Laws' and flying the Confederate Flag------------I witnessed "colored only" bathrooms, and was in establishments where the Klan showed up. I stayed at hotels where my family and I found pounds of raw CHITTERLINS---hogs guts----- at our doorstep!! But don't get me wrong, as despite these ugly truths about the South, I grew up with some very cool whites, mexicans, Filipino's and other races. But it is what it is. It has Metamorphosized into being a cultural and real estate melting pot, as many from other states are recently flocking there for the cheaper home prices, very stable, safer lifestyle and "bible belt" mentality, and affordable education. I too have Metamorphosized , as I am not the militant little athletic, and partying freak I used to be and have settled into writing for Cold Heat News and assisting We Care for Humanity with their charitable functions. Consequently, I am pretty much a normal army brat who has realized that life is what you make it and people and things are subject to change. So change with life and let by gones be by gones. My dad has since passed away, and my mom and sister and most of my cousins are still alive, but their positive,significant influence, along with the impact my elementary and high school friends have had on me continues on;infact, I believe, where it not for my childhood friends, my high school football Coach Jack Cantey and occasional teenage battles with my dad, I would have become a gang member! Thus my personal manifesto is, Live hard, party when it is time, and utilize both education, and Love for God, and know that FAMILY AND FRIENDS are most important;They're one's conduit for a viable and happy life. ALSO, A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND---NOT A "FAIR WEATHER"------INDEED.
