HUSH 2 "END THE SILENCE," CATCH A FIRE & LAUGHING THROUGH TEARS
A riveting drama set on the beautiful Caribbean Island of Barbados. Life for 15-year-old Makisha got tough when she became pregnant. With no job, she is still desirous of finishing school. Her mother Darlene, a single mom, is suffering financially, and her boyfriend's life is going on a downward spiral. It is in these tough times, when Makisha needs help, that she meets her wealthy dad Morris and her sister Claire. Could this reunion be the answer to all her financial needs or will this be her worst nightmare? Will finding another side of her family give her all the love she has been searching for?

Barbados, 2009, 104 min, Drama, English with Barbadian dialect with English subtitles, Marcia Weekes, dir.

Q&A after screening on Caribbean Night, Sun. Nov. 27 @ 6pm.

LAUGHING THROUGH TEARS
Based on the true story of an elderly Jamaican woman suffering with Alzheimer's disease, this short film takes you on a roller coaster of emotions as you follow Miss Lilly into her past.  Her doctor only sees outward symptoms of her disease: disorientation, lack of sleep, paranoia and the loss of basic motor skills.  But in her head, all she feels is loneliness and the world around her changing. She now lives with her son but recalls her dead parents and five other   siblings, when they where young.

Canada/Jamaica, 2011, 8 min, Drama, English, Mckie Rick, dir.

CATCH A FIRE
Catch a Fire tells the story of Deacon Paul Bogle, often described as a 19th century Malcom X. 30 years after the end of slavery in Jamaica, the Morant Bay Rebellion of 1865 provoked outrage in Victorian Britain, shaping race and land attitudes. The story is constructed using extensive interviews with Paul Bogle's grandson as well as archival material.

Jamaica/UK, 1995, 30 min, Docu-Drama, English, Menelik Shabazz, dir.
