About “A WINTER TALE” (Canada, 2007) Frances-Anne Solomon’s award-winning feature A Winter Tale tells the emotional story of a Black men’s support group that begins to meet at a Caribbean restaurant, following the shooting death of a young child. It features a talented ensemble cast led by Canadian stars Peter Williams and Michael Miller, and Caribbean icons Leonie Forbes and Dennis “Sprangalang” Hall.
The movie opened this year’s ReelWorld Film Festival, and took home the Tonya Lee Williams Award for Outstanding Canadian Feature. Since then it has been touring the international festival circuit, to acclaim by media and audiences alike.
“A Winter Tale is an intensely powerful story about the reinstallation of moral responsibility in Toronto’s black male community. Its prime movers walk it in real life like they talk it in this must-see fiction feature… – The Montreal Gazette
“…violence is not a spectator sport, and nowhere in this film could you simply watch — you felt the call to action, and even discussion.” Expose Entertainment Magazine.
The New York African Diaspor Film festival is the largest showcase of Black Films on the East Coast, this year presenting more than 100 film over 17 days and featuring an eclectic mix of Urban, Classic, Foreign and Independent films including many World and US premieres.
