Third Horizon Film Festival presents Sprinter.

 

Akeem Sharp is set to be the next big thing in Jamaican athletics—not for nothing are they calling the dreadlocked teenage runner the Rasta Rocket. His older brother Germaine, once a promising track-and-field athlete himself and now involved in various shady schemes, is soon on the scene, looking to insinuate himself into Akeem’s life and manipulate his career. With the added burden of an unstable father at home, Akeem is hoping his meteoric rise will take him out of Jamaica and to the United States, where his mother has lived as an illegal migrant for over a decade. Storm Saulter’s follow-up to Better Mus’ Come, his acclaimed debut feature, Sprinter does not disappoint: this is a highly accomplished, supremely entertaining drama.

A closeted young boxer in rural Cuba must face off with his best friend and rival for a chance to escape his hyper-masculine society.
