Did you miss last year's screening of GCUFF's opening film, CRU? Well, you'll now have a chance to catch it from the comfort of your own home. CRU will be premiering on BET Networks tonight at 8pm.
Directed by filmmaker Alton Glass, CRU centers around four high school best friends whose lives are dramatically changed the night of a near-fatal accident. Once reunited 18 years later, past and present secrets are revealed that ultimately change the course of their lives as they know them. The film was presented at last year's Greater Cleveland Urban Film Festival, and was part of a 20-city invitational screening tour.
Alton Glass is also known for the films The Confidant starting Boris Kodjoe, Richard Roundtree, and Kenya Moore, and The Candy Shop starring Omar Gooding.
