THE DIRECTOR OF “JAMAICAN MAFIA” HOPES FOR A BIG TURN-OUT FOR ITS JAMAICAN PREMIERE!

VAFOMBA Donzo, director of Jamaican Mafia, said he is encouraged by the audience turnout to his movie and hopes for a similar response for his Jamaican premiere.

“Once we finalise the date, we will let the public know. But I’m hoping for a big premiere,” he told the Jamaica Observer.

Filmed entirely in New York City last year, the movie had its American premiere at Sunrise Multiplex Cinemas in Valley Stream, Queens, New York.

Jamaican Mafia stars Paul Campbell, whose credits include Dancehall Queen and Third World Cop. Mykal Fax and D’Angel are also listed among the credits.

Donzo said the turnout was encouraging as the theatres were sold out. He said the film has also made stops in Altanta and North Carolina.

“We had two showings in Atlanta, and one screening in North Carolina. The response was very positive,” he said.

Originally scheduled for August 27, the premiere was postponed as Donzo, who had the only copy of the film, suffered a stroke and had to be rushed to the hospital.

“I would like to take the opportunity to thank all the people who wished me speedy recovery,” he said.
