After successfully raising nearly $1.5 million on Kickstarter, Spike Lee’s latest feature is ready to be shown to the world. Da Sweet Blood of Jesus isn’t exactly about vampires, but does feature “human beings who are addicted to blood,” according to the director. Described as “funny, sexy and bloody,” the film will be world premiering this month at the Annual American Black Film Festival and today we have the first look.

Coming from BlackFilm, one can see it below for the film starring Zaraah Abrahams, Stephen Tyrone Williams, Michael K. Williams, Felicia Pearson, Steven Hauck and Elvis Nolasco. We’ve also got a new short film from the director, created for Pepsi for the World Cup, which is set to Kelly Rowland‘s The Game and follows a futbol-loving boy through the streets of Rio De Janeiro. Check it out below, along with the still.
