This Friday, April 13th, 2012, T.D Jakes welcomes a new installment from the Woman Thou Art Loosed series. This one goes above and beyond its predecessor in quality and message. Directed by trailblazer and award-winning filmmaker Neema Barnette, WTAL: On The Seventh Day boasts an amazing ensemble of talented actors including Blair Underwood, Sharon Leal, and Pam Grier. With notable performances by Nicoye Banks, Nicole Beharie, and Reed R. McCants. Each serves the audience true to life suspense, and emotion. When David and Kari Ames's daughter Mikayla goes missing, this who-done-it masterfully unfolds and keeps the audience on the edge of their seats! WTAL: On the Seventh Day is not only a testament of faith, but a balanced examination of the human spirit, as well as the complexities of perception, and self-imposed condemnation. The biblical scripture, "Let he has not sinned cast the first stone" is absolutely fitting. However, this is not preachy film. Director Barnette orchestrates this drama/thriller with vigor and eloquence. She delves into the role power plays in searching for the missing, the true grit of relationships, and the wickedness of deception, against a Louisiana backdrop beautifully captured by Cinematographer Keith L. Smith. This film is a must see! You will leave the theater full, yet wanting more! Sitting in the sold-out audience at the Museum of Moving Image on March 29th, that was the consensus! As the credits rolled the audience stood and cheered for the cast, crew, TD Jakes, and Neema Barnette - who took the series to a whole new level, and who's accolades are long over due.
