‘The Diary Of A Badman’ Premieres In Jamaica And The Cayman Islands, March 30th 2016

keri diary

‘The Diary of a Badman’ won Best Narrative Feature at the recent JAMPRO Jamaica Film Festival July 2015 and will have its first theatrical release in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands on March 30th, 2016. The film will run three weeks in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands.

This film gives a revitalizing outlook on the entire undercover cop movie. Such films are normally male dominated, and women generally play love interests, victims, or supporting officers with very little screen time. Women of African descent usually don’t acquire these opportunities; however with “Diary of a BadMan” it changes that status quo. This movie is Cleopatra Jones meets Donnie Brasco and much, much more.

Film Synopsis:

He was her assignment. She became his diary. Detective Simone Williams, a Jamaican immigrant to the US, dreams of working undercover on a high profile case. She finally gets her chance to go undercover in an attempt to catch a notorious drug dealer, Winston Bailey aka Bucky. She falls victim to his charming personality; compromising her assignment. Lines begin to blur as she gets in deeper. Over time, Williams develops a close bond with Bailey, and their loyalties are put to the ultimate test.

About The Cast:

The film consists of cast members mostly of Jamaican and African Americans descent. Jacinth Sutphin; actress, model, and writer who was born and raised in St. Mary, Jamaica (Richmond), who plays the lead role of a undercover detective as Simone Williams. Prior to the film she moved to the states to pursue her acting career and was very enthused to come back to her country of birth to showcase her work in the acting and film industry. Douglas A. Robbs plays the role of Winston Bailey aka “Bucky” who is the target for the undercover operation. Douglas is a Crown Heights Brooklyn native; who really loves the Jamaican culture and people as well. Michael Thor Love, plays the role of Sargent Putkowski who heads the undercover team and is excited to break into the Jamaican show business this year and to also embrace the culture and people. Other cast members include: Kyle Moore, LaTonya Grant, Levar Dawkins, Richard Bird, TJ Thomas, Kellen Wingate, Jamek Grigg, Robert Murray, and Tanya Thompson.

Based on the name; ‘Diary of A BadMan’ it would be a concern for Jamaicans and persons of African descent that this film will be projecting a bad look on them, however Diemiruaya continues to explain that ‘This is art, and there are many ways to tell a story,’ he guarantees that when you watch this movie you will be blown away because in the film you get to see the bad guy in a different light; you however may not agree with his ways of achieving his goals but you will understand and may eventually agree to his cause of actions.

About Director Diemiruaya

Diemiruaya Deniran was born and raised in London, England.  He now resides in New York City, where he has lived since 1996.  In addition to countless musical projects as a solo artist and featured in collaborative groups, he has written and produced several independent film projects, such as the web series Sexamacation, the short film Kuwsh, The Transaction, the Sci-Fi thriller Soul Remover, Reserve Notes and now Diary of a Badman. Actors and crew that have worked with him on the set have purported him as being demanding, yet extremely effective.  They have expressed his uncanny ability to bring out the best in them as well as depict a masterful interpretation of what he captures with his camera.

Additional screenings are scheduled for New York City 4/7/16 (AMC Theaters 42nd street Manhattan)
