Completing the third installment of Crazy Hood Film Academy’s “Coming Home” documentary series, Revolt TV presented the premiere screening of “Coming Home: Haiti” at Miami’s Little Haiti Cultural Center on August 16th to a packed house.
The event was hosted by 99 JAMZ radio personality Supa Cindy, music supplied by the incredible DJ A.K. Vybz with refreshments by celebrity gourmet Chef Teach Creates. Along with offering attendees a sneak peek into the documentary, guest also enjoyed a Meet & Greet with cast members and question-and-answer session with producers.
Directed by DJ EFN (notably known as “Miami’s Mixtape King”) and Michael Garcia, “Coming Home: Haiti” is the third film in Crazy Hood Film Academy’s “Coming Home” documentary series, which explores Hip-Hop in other countries. The previous installments from Cuba and Peru are currently airing on Revolt TV. Guest appearances on “Coming Home: Haiti” include Ras Kass, M1 of dead prez, Barikad Crew and Rockfam.
“Hip Hop has gone global and affects the lives of people around the world. We’ve already shown the undeniable presence of our culture in Cuba and Peru,” says DJ EFN, who is also executive producer. “With the third installment filmed in Haiti, we felt that Miami’s Little Haiti area would be the perfect location to preview it”.
A much-respected music industry veteran, EFN established EFN Visual Mixtapes in 2010, when he noticed that the artists with whom he was working needed quick music videos to promote their music. The firm’s client list included such artists as ¡Mayday!, Ras Kass, Gunplay, Tech N9ne, Pharrell and N.O.R.E..
In 2012, EFN and Garcia formed Crazy Hood Film Academy and produced their first feature film, a documentary about the Hip-Hop scene in Cuba entitled “Coming Home.” The film was named Best Documentary at The People’s Film Festival in 2013 and went on to be featured in several film festivals domestically and internationally. The film-making duo finally landing a deal with Sean ‘P.Diddy’ Combs’ new cable network Revolt TV.
