Check out the new trailer for Amman Abbasi’s Dayveon, starring newcomer Devin Blackmon, which premiered earlier this year at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. The film will be open in theaters on September 13, 2017 in Los Angeles at Laemmle Monica Film Center, and in New York City at Quad Cinema.
In the film, 13-year-old Dayveon (newcomer Devin Blackmon) struggling with his older brother’s death, spends the sweltering summer days roaming around his rural Arkansan town. With no parents and few role models, he soon falls in with the local gang. Though his sister’s boyfriend tries to provide stability and comfort as a reluctant father figure, Dayveon becomes increasingly drawn into the camaraderie and violence of his new world.
