Tuesday, October 30, the independent film Never Heard premiered at the Universal CityWalk, in Los Angeles. David Banner, Karrueche Tran, Romeo Miller, and Kandi Burruss were a few cast mates who graced the carpet.
A movie about redemption, forgiveness, and patience–Never Heard is described as:
Aaron Davis (Banner) is accused of murder and incarcerated for a crime he swears that he did not commit. His son Jalen (Miller) is forced to grow up on the streets of Los Angeles without the guidance of a father and primarily raised by his mother Shala (Givens) and Grandmother Camilla (Karen Abercrombie). Jalen finds his life at risk after his friend Diggy (Talton) decides to partner with one of the biggest drug dealers in the city leaving a large debt to be recouped. Everything seems to turn around when Aaron is reminded to put his faith in God first and use the power of prayer to help solve his problems. Will Aaron find a way to prove his innocence and save his son’s life before it is too late?
Atlanta’s very own, Kandi Burruss (Tara), stars in the film, as a single parent who was left by her husband and uses drugs to numb her pain.
When asked about her character, the RHOA star stated:
The thing I love most about the film is it is something totally different from myself. I wanted to do something people wouldn’t expect me to do.
We also had a chance to catch up with rapper turned activist, David Banner, the main character of the film (Aaron Davis). The Mississippi native stated that he was interested in the film because it was a time to tell a story about the Black experience from a different lens.
In so many cases, we watch movies that have something to do with the Black experience and it seems to be objectified. In this case, he’s fighting for his son, freedom, and his name. I think this will be an opportunity where we will see some redemption.
Directed by Josh Webber, the film debuts one night only, on November 1st, in select AMC & Regal theaters.
