Sometimes dreams may be the only hope to escape death
The film "Pressure" provided Abdu with the opportunity to fulfill a personal desire to share his New York City "growing up" experiences in a way that not only tells a inner-city story, it demonstrates how our made choices map out our destiny. The film mirrors raw life experiences that children of today encounter in similar ways. Like its name, the film is Pressure packed and does not hold back - providing the viewer with a reality that pulls off the veil of the streets and speaks to truth; in a way that hits home awakening the minds of young and old alike.
The film connects us to the 1980's complete with the outstanding break dance b-boy performances by the original group established in 1979 i.e. The "DYNAMIC ROCKERS" and their rival b-boy group the "SUPREME BEINGZ". These two crews go head to head and add flavor to the neighborhood scenes. The key actors in the film Damion Omar Lee, Chauncey Meeks Owens, Andrea Bordeaux, Daniel Molina, James Shippy, and Sharieff Carson have theater backgrounds, which enable them to bring depth and sincerity in the portrayal of their respective characters.
"PRESSURE" takes us back to the joyful days prior to the influence of crack cocaine (1985), and brings us upfront and personal with the effects of the drug culture, which continues to riddle the lives of families and friends today. Abdu masterfully crafts the film with impactful subliminal messages, as we travel never knowing exactly where we will end up. This is a must see film -- a film for the ages!
Abdu has agreed to exhibit "Pressure" via a limited number of select colleges and universities to allow college and high school students the opportunity to share in the experience of the film. As he say's "The only way to relieve the "Pressure" is to show it for what it is."
