Globally recognized television, film and stage actor John Marshall Jones (Bosch, Shooter, In The Cut, Rectify) is bringing his award winning film, The Last Revolutionary, to Atlanta’s Bronze Lens Film Festival held at the Westin Peachtree Hotel in downtown Atlanta 8/23- 8/27 2017. The Last Revolutionary will screen on Saturday, August 26th, 11:45 am at the Westin. Jones, best known for his role on the global hit series Smart Guy, executive produced and is starring in this critically acclaimed feature film, penned by (and also starring) multiple award winning screen writer Levy Lee Simon, and currently burning up the film festival circuit across the U.S.
The Last Revolutionary follows two former Black Panthers, one who has become a modern day conservative suburbanite, while the other is still in the same apartment from 1972 wearing the same outfit, brandishing multiple weapons and calling his former “street warriors” to help him start the revolution all over again. The two come into conflict as they debate the Obama Backlash, the Tea Party, and the path forward for Black America in the age of Trump. The scintillating jazz soundtrack was composed by multiple Grammy award nominee, Guggenheim Fellow and Lady of Soul award winner, the late Geri Allen.
