MONTREAL, Sept. 25, 2018 – The Montreal International Black Film Festival, created by the Fabienne Colas Foundation and presented by Quebecor, will launch its 14th edition with the Canadian premiere of writer-director Jamie Jones’ OBEY, on Tuesday, September 25, 7 PM at Imperial Theatre. Winner of Best Cinematography in an International Feature Film at the Tribeca Film Festival 2018, OBEY is Jamie Jones‘ first narrative feature and will kick off MIBFF’s official competition. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film director.
As London slides towards a time of violent social unrest, on the estates of East London, a young man’s life is torn apart by a love for a girl from a different place.
Jamie Jones is the award-winning director of The Nest, a short film starring Vicky McClure. OBEY, Jones’s first feature addresses themes that he continues to explore in his all films: why poverty is so often linked to violence, and why it so often pushes people to extremes.
