December 10: Hampton Roads Native To Screen Film At Chesapeake Cinema

Compiled from Black Talent.TV press release

This weekend, Hampton Roads will get a taste and look at the latest work of an upcoming director who has local roots.

“La Vie Magnifique de Charlie,” the first full length movie of Bobby Huntley II, will be screened December 10 at the Cinema Café – Greenbrier Mall in Chesapeake at 5 p.m.

Huntley, who hails  from Virginia Beach, lives in Atlanta, where he is an Independent Filmmaker, Director, Writer, Editor, and Producer. He holds a BA Degree in Media Production: Specialization in Digital Film and Post Production from Atlanta’s American InterContinental University.

Huntley gained attention back in 2015 when his New Edition biopic trailer, “Ne Heartbreak,” went viral several times. With the popularity of this video, he was able to get his foot in the door and attract the attention of some major people in the entertainment industry.

Huntley is currently touring across the country showcasing his new movies “Louisiana 1961”  and “La Vie Magnifique de Charlie”  at  theaters and   film festivals in Atlanta, Hollywood, Harlem, Cleveland, Baltimore, Philadelphia and now back home in Hampton Roads.

“La Vie Magnifique de Charlie,” his first feature length film, was just accepted into the Bronze Lens Film Festival in Atlanta.

The film follows the female character Charlie after the untimely death of her sister Brandy.

Everyone around Charlie is a bit thrown off with how she approaches her grieving process. Huntley’s promoters say he wanted to create a film which gives a good example of self-exploration that wasn’t centered around men. This film is light-hearted with a dash of grit.

Along the way to dealing with her grief, she receives various tidbits and clues, from her deceased sibling to help her in her quest.

Huntley’s work was recognized  at the fifth annual Georgia Entertainment  Gala; nominated “People to watch in Georgia’s Entertainment Industries;” the  Black Bird Film festival’s 2017
Audience top Choice/Cinematic Writing Award; and the Baltimore International Black Film Festival’s  Audience Choice  Best Narrative, among others.

Entry fee for the special viewing is $10.
