Popular Hip-Hop model Angel Lola Luv Fershgenet will celebrate her feature film debut at the 12th Annual American Black film Festival (ABFF) in Los Angeles (August 7).
The film, entitled Crazy Like a Fox, is billed as an erotic thriller and set in modern day New York City.
Luv plays Angelique Dubois, a former model whose marriage to an older Harlem psychiatrist becomes threatened by an affair with their chauffeur, which leads to a brutal murder.
The film also stars Nigerian actor Karibi Fubara, Jamaican model Kenturah Hamilton, David Tawil, Ebbe Bassey, and a host of Broadway actors.
The film marks Luvs first attempt to reach her goal of having a legitimate career as an actress.
She first gained national exposure in 2007 after appearing in Trey Songzs Wonder Woman video.
Since then she has worked in videos for Young Buck, Kanye West, Lloyd Banks, and 50 Cent.
Luv also graced the cover of Black Men Magazine, and was named the New It Girl of 2007.
Directed, written, and produced by Tony Abulu, Crazy Like a Fox is his third feature film.
His 1998 debut Back to Africa received critical acclaim at the Pan African Film Festival and also this year during a 10 year anniversary screening at the Newark Black Film Festival.
Abulu references the ABFFs selection of Crazy Like a Fox as a testament to the quality and creativity of African artists.
The ABFF is one of the most influential Black film festivals in the world, and were honored that our film was selected for screening, Abulu proudly stated to AllHipHop.com. We know that it will give the film the opportunity for mainstream U.S. distribution.
The film is set to premier at the Mann Beverly Center 13 Cinemas on August 7 at 4:41PM.
