Director, producer, GRAMMY-nominated Wu-Tang Clan member RZA’s latest film., CUT THROAT CITY, is set to have its world premiere at SXSW 2020 in Austin, TX, the festival announced on January 15.
The explosive film – led by actor Shameik Moore – is the story of four boyhood friends in New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward who return after Hurricane Katrina to find their homes decimated, with no jobs, and no help from FEMA. Out of options, they reluctantly turn to a local gangster, who offers them one shot at turning their situations around – by pulling off a dangerous heist in the heart of the city. When the job goes bad, the friends find themselves on the run, hunted by two relentless detectives and a neighborhood warlord who thinks they stole the heist money.
The dates of all festival screenings will be announced later this month.
