Bobbcat Films’ ‘Raising Izzie’ Premieres in Atlanta

Reality stars Cynthia Bailey and Tawanda Braxton join "Raising Izzie" director-producer Roger Bobb, reality star Stormy Wellington and comedian-actor Rodney Perry at the Woodruff Art Center in Atlanta

ATLANTA — A phalanx of Atlanta celebrities joined producer-director Roger Bobb for the Bobbcat Films’ premiere of Raising Izzie at the Woodruff Arts Center in Midtown Atlanta. The major motion picture centers around of two young white children (Victoria Staley as Gertie, Kyla Kennedy as Izzie) who go homeless after their remaining parent (played by Catherine Dyer) succumbed to cancer, and who were reluctantly adopted by a middle-class African American married couple (Rockmond Dunbar and Vanessa Williams). The riveting film pulled on the heart strings of festival attendees at the American Black Film Festival in Miami Beach, Fla., in June.
