Black Dynamite has been officially announced as the opening gala film at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival. Directed by Scott Sanders the film stars Michael Jai White and is shot in the style of a blaxploitation film of the 1970’s. Inspired mostly by such films as Shaft, Dolemite and Superfly it was a Sundance sensation immediately picking up distribution from Sony Pcitures at a cost of two million dollars.

Set in the 1970s, the film tells the story of Black Dynamite. The action legend attempts to take down his arch nemesis “The Man,” who is responsible for the murder of his brother and for getting kids in local orphanages addicted to heroin and malt liquor. Black Dynamite is the one person who will fight from the city streets to “Honky House” in order to get justice for the oppressed.
