VAFOMBA Donzo, director of Jamaican Mafia, is encouraged by the turnout at the American premiere of his movie and is looking forward to the same at his Jamaican premiere.

“Once we finalise the date, we will let the public know. But I’m hoping for a big premiere,” he told the Jamaica Observer.

The movie, which was filmed entirely in New York City last year, had its American premiere at Sunrise Multiplex Cinemas in Valley Stream, Queens, New York. The cast of the movie includes stars like Paul Campbell, whose credits include Dancehall Queen and Third World Cop, Mykal Fax and D’Angel. Donzo said the theatres were sold out and the film has also made stops in Altanta and North Carolina.

“We had two showings in Atlanta, and one screening in North Carolina. The response was very positive,” he said.

Jamaican Mafia is a gangster-thriller movie similar to Goodfellas and Shottas. It is about a frustrated car salesman. Zoolian Anderson (Zoo-Zoo), who desperately desires riches and respect. When he discovers that he’s the nephew of a powerful crime-boss, he decides to quit the corporate world to join the illicit organization better known as the ‘Jamaican Mafia’.
