Directed by Regina King and adapted by Kemp Powers from his stage play of the same name, ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI…(2020) stars Kingsley Ben-Adir, Eli Goree, Aldis Hodge and Leslie Odom Jr., with music by Terence Blanchard. The film also features the contributions of AFI Conservatory Alumni Naomi Sunrise Filoramo (Class of 2008), Luke Little (Class of 2003) and Evan Welch (Class of 2019). Recognized with an AFI AWARD in 2020 as one of the most outstanding achievements in the art of the moving image, the official rationale states: “ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI…is a knockout. This powerfully imagined gathering of giants – Malcolm X, Cassius Clay, Sam Cooke and Jim Brown – announces the arrival of Regina King as a singular voice behind the camera. A meticulously choreographed dreamscape that leaps from the words of writer Kemp Powers, the film asks, ‘What if…’ and then confronts the complicated legacy of race in America with searing insights ignited by a war of words, the bonds of brotherhood and the hope that change is gonna come.”
