2020 Black Harvest Film Festival closes on November 30th with a tribute to the illustrious career of Chadwick Boseman.
The Kill Hole, Boseman’s first starring feature film role, screened in the 2012 Black Harvest festival. This thriller takes on issues from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars as traumatized vet Lt. Samuel Drake (Chadwick Boseman) is haunted by one very dirty secret from his past.
Living on the margins of Portland as a taxi driver, Drake soon comes to realize that he remains the pawn of the Army’s venal independent contractors.
He receives one final order: search out and take out the renegade fellow vet (Tory Kittles) who was witness to his crime. The tense manhunt is set in the spectacular Oregon wilderness, where the face-to-face meeting of two hardened killers makes for an unpredictable resolution. The cast also includes Billy Zane and Peter Green.
Chadwick Boseman, who tragically died in 2020, after a four year bout with colon cancer is known for his portrayal of T’Challa / Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe from 2016 to 2019, particularly in Black Panther, and for his starring roles as several pioneering Americans, Jackie Robinson in 42, James Brown in Get on Up, and Thurgood Marshall in Marshall. He also had choice parts in The Express, Draft Day, and Message from the King.
Born in Anderson, South Carolina, he attended Howard University and studied at the Oxford Mid-Summer Program for acting, before moving to Los Angeles in 2008 to pursue his craft on the big screen. During his relatively short film career he had starred in several of the biggest movies ever made.
