We’ll continue to highlight various films from the festival throughout the month. Below is the trailer for Snow On Tha Bluff, a dramatic film by Damon Russell that premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival this year.

Synopsis for the film…”Snow On Tha Bluff is the story of Curtis Snow, an Atlanta robbery boy and crack dealer who steals a video camera from some college kids during a dope deal, and begins documenting his life. At first, it’s business as usual for Curt. He robs dope boys, he runs from the cops, and he sells drugs, all while trying to provide for his baby momma and 2-year-old son. But when one of the rival drug dealers he rips off comes back for revenge, Curt’s life spirals out of control.

    Wow, this looks pretty darn interesting. I’m curious to know if this is available for purchase, it reminds me of this interesting short I saw many years ago. Honestly, I’m gonna bet these are real people, not actors.

      The filmmaker says he’s often asked if the project is real or scripted. For legal purposes, he will neither confirm nor deny. I suspect it’s probably both.
