Tonight is opening night at the Pan African Film Festival and we’ll be there to see what looks like a very funny film.  It’s called “Love Jacked” .  It’s a romantic comedy centered around Maya, a headstrong 28-year-old with artistic ambitions and her father Ed, who wants a dutiful daughter to run the family store. Ed is shocked when Maya, asserting her independence, decides to travel to Africa for inspiration and returns with a fiancé.

“Love Jacked” stars Amber Stevens-West, Shamier Anderson, Lyriq Bent, Keith David, Mike Epps, Marla Gibbs, Angela Gibbs, Demetrius Grosse and Nicole Lyn..  Cast members will be present at the red carpet screening.
