Jeymes Samuel’s “They Die By Dawn” is a fantastic 51 minute film based on the true lives of African American cowboys.

Saturday featured the premiere of the film at the 3rd Annual Blackstar Film Festival at the International House. The screening was sold out. I would say the crowd loved it as they laughed and even spoke back to the screen as the action was going on. Then we were blessed to have a great and informative Q & A with actor Michael K Williams (The Wire, Broadwalk Empire, The Sopranos).
