Magnolia Pictures has picked up worldwide rights to Tim Alexander's feature directorial debut Diary of A Mad Black Man.

The story uses a series of vignettes to explore the nature of relationships between black men and the stereotypes and resentment that lurk within.

Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles called it a 'firecracker of a film that is sure to be a real conversation starter and will definitely open up some fresh dialogue.'
