“Gorgeous… the film is epic in ambition.”
—The Village Voice

In late 1970s Kingston, Jamaica, the two major political parties enlist the support of gangs to enforce their policies and advance their agendas. Community leader Ricky (Shepherd) leads one such wayward gang, whose members must regularly scavenge and steal to survive. He meets Kamala (Grey, Restless City) amid the chaos and they instantly connect despite the dangers of belonging to opposing gangs. A stirring cameo by Roger Guenveur Smith (Malcolm X, Do the Right Thing) as the Prime Minister provides the focus for this fictionalized dramatization of events surrounding the 1978 Green Bay Massacre.

Screens with Michael Goodin and Christina Voros' 
Egress (2014) 18min. A New York City homeless man is forced to evolve from his past to transcend the painful sacrifice of the present so he can bravely grasp the challenge of a lifetime to create his future.


This screening is part of the Caribbean Film Series, which presents feature films made by Caribbean filmmakers that highlight the richness, uniqueness, and viability of Caribbean cinema to Brooklyn, home to the largest population of Caribbean nationals in the United States, and to all New York City residents and visitors.  For more information visit the Caribbean Film Academy website.
