By Sun News staff on June 20, 2013 at 7:32 AM, updated June 20, 2013 at 7:37 AM Digiplex Solon Cinema 16 will be rolling-out the red carpet June 24 for newly-inducted Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Public Enemy for the world premiere of Cleveland independent film “Swing Lowe Sweet Chariote,” an emotionally charged urban drama based on a novel by Cleveland author Stella Hall. HWIC Filmworks, a Cleveland-based movie production company owned by cousins John Delserone and David C. Snyder, announced five theaters, including the Digiplex Solon Cinema 16, will play the 96-minute feature film simultaneously starting at 7 p.m. June 24, but red carpet festivities will begin at 6:30 p.m. The movie release party will begin immediately after the film, next door at the TS Macklin Event Centre, 6200 Enterprise Parkway. Fans will get the chance to meet and greet with Public Enemy and the entire cast and crew at the release party. Snyder, has directed all of Public Enemy’s music videos since 2005 and has a close working relationship with the group. Because of that relationship they managed to get a theme song for the movie and have lead man, Chuck D, appear in the film. “Chuck and I have been working together on projects for years now and he always makes himself available for whatever I happen to be working on. We are incredibly fortunate to be able to call on a legend like that and have him enthusiastically contribute to our films,” Snyder said. The film is told from the perspective of a young African-American girl from inner-city Cleveland whose best friend is murdered two weeks before she’s set to graduate top of her class from high school. After this traumatic event, her life begins to take a major turn as she struggles with inner demons she never knew were there. The movie was predominantly shot in the city of Cleveland, with the exception of a few scenes in Euclid and University Heights. It’s only fitting that a movie that takes place in, was filmed at, and stars all-Cleveland talent should premiere in the Cleveland area,” Delserone said. Aside from the star, Phillia Thomas, other local talent in the cast includes rapper Ray Jr. and former Cuyahoga County Commissioner Peter Lawson Jones. Movie tickets are $15 and movie ticket plus release party tickets together are $25. Tickets are available at swinglowetickets.com or by calling 216-400-9555. There will be a limited quantity of tickets available at the door. The movie will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray June 25 at the movie’s official website, swinglowemovie.com, and Krush clothing store locations.
