Jay-Z And Will Smith Collaborate As Executive Producers To Bring 'Free Angela' Documentary To Theatres - Written And Directed By Shola Lynch (See Trailer + Photos Of Will Smith And His Family Supporting The Talented Documentary Filmmaker)

Shola Lynch
The theatrical rights to the documentary, Free Angela and All Political Prisoners, have been acquired by Codeblack Films. The film about Angela Davis premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2012 to rave reviews. Coming along for the ride as executive producers for Free Angela are Jay-Z’s Roc Nation and Will Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment.

Written and directed by Shola Lynch, Free Angela tells the journey of how the young college professor, who was member of the Communist Party and an associate of the Black Panther Party, landed on the FBI’s ten most wanted list and became one of America’s most renowned revolutionaries. The film, which will be presented by BET Networks , will be released exclusively in select AMC theatres in Washington D.C., Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Oakland, Philadelphia and Atlanta on April 5, 2013.

“We knew that this film was important and would not only shed a spotlight on history, but provide a flashlight for our future,” said Jeff Clanagan, CEO of Codeblack Enterprises in a statement. “Angela Davis is a staple in history and continues to cross generational and cultural lines in her plight to fight for the freedom of all people.”

Well, I have to PROUDLY add that Will Smith has always expressed his admiration for Shola Lynch's work and attended the premiere of Free Angela with his family at the Toronto Film Festival in September 2012.
