THE LAND, starring Erykah Badu, will be the opening night film at this year's Dallas International Film Festival. The movie recently premiered at The Sundance Film Festival.
THE LAND tells the story of four teenage boys who devote their summer to escaping the streets of Cleveland, Ohio to pursue a dream life of professional skateboarding. But when they get caught in the web of the local Queen-pin (Erykah Badu), their brotherhood is tested, threatening to make this summer their last. According to Badu, she plays "the neighborhood ho".
Badu, along with the four young stars of the movie, is scheduled to appear on the DIFF Red Carpet at the movie's screening at the Dallas City Performance Hall, 2520 Flora Street. Get information on passes for the event at Dallas Film Festival website.
