Joel Kapity‘s film “DREAMS” is coming out on DVD.
Lionsgate Home Entertainment just announced the movie will be released on January 28th.
“DREAMS” is a captivating look inside the journey of four dreamers; a dancer, a singer, an ex-boxer, and a rapper, who are all tied together by life’s most common thread: the past.
Starring Grammy nominated Angie Stone, members of the Grammy wining gospel family, Vickie Winans and Marvin L Winans, Jr., professional dancer Marchello Lee, boxing trainer Joseph Awinongya, R&B singer J’SON, and “American Idol’s” Syesha Mercado.
Director Joel Kapity interweaves powerful stories of inner city life as Chicago residents fight to overcome difficult circumstances.
Mia (Mercado) dreams of singing, Quentin (Lee) dreams of dancing, Paalo (Awinongya) dreams of mending his relationship with his daughter and Alonzo (J’SON) dreams of reconnecting with his family. But fragments of abuse and failures from their broken past, make the trek up life’s hills hard to climb.
Kapity also made real-life dreams come true, by bringing Hollywood to the urban city and offering local Chicago performers and filmmakers to participate in the films production.
“DREAMS” premiered in 2011 and is Kapity’s sophomore film. In 2010 he directed “Blessed and Cursed.”
The cast also includes Tommy Ford from “The Parkers,” Terri J. Vaughn from “Meet the Browns,” Mel Jackson from “Soul Food,” Geoffrey Owens from “The Cosby Show,” Dennis “LA” White from “Notorious,” “American Idol’s” Lisa Tucker, Jazsmin Lewis from “Barber Shop,” Lou Myers from “A Different World,” and Mel Jackson from “Deliver Us From Eva.”
