Our favourite Canadian pop-rock singer Fefe Dobson will be making her film debut in Home Again, it was announced Thursday, January 26.
Home Again is a drama about three young people deported to Jamaica and raised abroad who are deported, forcing them to return to an unfamiliar homeland. Landing in Kingston without family, friends, or shelter, each character is left struggling to survive.
The film addresses the problem of Jamaica’s growing deportee population. Deportees are largely blamed for the serous violence in Jamaica, which has the third highest per capita murder rate in the world.
Dobson will be joining Tatyana Ali (The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air), Lyriq Bent (Rookie Blue), Stephan James (Degrassi: The Next Generation), and C.C.H. Pounder (Avatar) for the Canadian indie film. It was written by Sudz Sutherland and Jennifer Holness, and will be directed by Sudz Sutherland (Love, Sex, and Eating the Bones).
The Much Music Video Award winning singer has a globe-trotting year ahead. Not only has she been recording her next album in L.A., she will travel to Trinidad, Jamaica, and Toronto to film the movie.–Erin Fitzsimmons
