The Almighty Clock
Rupert Cummings, Jr., 2011, 65 min.
The ticking clock becomes the master of Mikey's (Mykal Fax) fate when his girlfriend Ciara (Shakira Ruiz) mistakenly hands him a bag containing $420, 000 which rightfully belongs to a psychotic loan-shark known as Wolfgang (Elie Shaby). Wolfgang abducts Ciara and poses strong threats and demands Mikey to return his money within 45 minutes. Half-naked, and without transportation, Mikey sets on a whimsical course, meeting numerous physical obstacles, mentally challenged to choose between love, and a whole lot of money.
Kinsey Beck, 2011, 54 min.
Man Free takes a look into the lives of everyday people in the beautiful country of Jamaica. Told through the people themselves, the film takes a glimpse into the lives of people young and old as they fight politics, crime, drugs and more. Man Free is narrated by the late Perry Henzell (The Harder They Come) and it includes some of the last footage of him before he passed.
