Share Article

"Â?the true story of a man's fall from grace and resurrection to the light."

Following the wave of accolades and industry excitement throughout the Pan-African Film Festival world premiere of 'Resurrection: The J.R. Richard Story' in Los Angeles earlier this month, Greg Carter returns triumphant to his Texas hometown February 24th - 27th for the Houston Black Film Festival screening of the filmmaker's latest masterpiece.

Featuring an all-star cast including Charles Durning ("Oh Brother, Where Art Thou") Kenya Moore ("Trois", "Deliver Us From Eva"), Richard Zavaglia ("Donnie Brasco") and multi-platinum R&B vocalist Betty Wright, the film written by Keith Kjornes depicts real life events of former Astros pitcher and baseball great J.R. Richard, and his fall from grace, when a near-fatal stroke removes Richard from the game.

The award-winning producer and director of seven films including "Fifth Ward" and "My Big Phat Hip Hop Family", scheduled to release with Maverick Entertainment in April, is a Master's graduate of Rice University. Carter's foray into the music video and documentary industry with labels EMI and Universal Records has proven as fruitful. "He's one of the best Urban genre filmmakers Hollywood's got," said Andre Tucker, President of Houston based Joshua's House.

Nexus Films, Carter's production company, is currently developing "Game Face" for the big screen with CSR Productions Entertainment Group and Joshua's House. Also written by Keith Kjornes, the film dramatizes the life of an NFL 'superstar' athlete forced to enter the sleazy underbelly of the Sport's Agenting business.
