"It is more than coincidence that these two movies, Four Corners
and Life of a King
, both dealing with chess and urban youth gangs, were unveiled just months apart. says Kelli Hunter, a spokesperson for the film. "The message delivered by Ricardo at the end of Four Corners
: you can't stand still - you have to make your move, is a strong message for youth everywhere." Four Corners
premiered on US screens last week at the Seattle International Film Festival, where it was highlighted as one of the festival's 'films to watch'. The movie's Youth Month schedule includes the release of the film on VOD for the month of June through DStv Box Office, a special screening for the launch of Short and Sweet in Soweto, the Australian premiere of the film on 7th June at the Sydney Film Festival, with a second screening on 11th June, and the special parallel screening at the San Francisco Black Film Festival on 13th June, attended by Cuba Gooding Jnr.
A special Arts Festival screening on Youth Day, June 16th, will be held at Hermanus and Hawston for local communities in those areas. Four Corners
has also been selected as closing night film at the Niagara Independent Film Festival on 22nd June, which will be attended by the film's director, Ian Gabriel.
By invitation, Four Corners will screen alongside Academy Award-winner Cuba Gooding Jnr's new film, Life of a King at the San Fransisco Black Film Festival
