Summertime. Kids. Dead Body. The hood. This sounds familiar, but this tale is unlike what you’ve seen. The Magic City is a gritty, poignant but still hopeful coming-of-age tale in Miami’s Liberty City where girls take center stage.Narrated by 11 year-old Tiana (newcomer Latrice Jackson), the film chronicles the life of her and her sister Nia (Lashay Jackson) as they come to live with their sweet Aunt Georgia.  The new girl across the street, Amiya (Amiyah Thomas), comes to visit her Aunt Valerie (Jenifer Lewis) and hateful cousin Brittney (Coi Collins) and soon befriends the two girls.  Everyone has a backstory of grief and trauma, and the Magic City soon uncovers it.Liberty City »
