MY FATHER'S LAND
by Tyler Johnston + Miquel Galofre
Papa Jah, a Haitian gardener, has spent the last forty years in the Bahamas, living in a marginalised community named the Mud. When news arrives that his 103-year-old father has taken ill back in Haiti, Papa Jah fears he may not see him before he passes. Papa Jah travels back to Haiti, to his familys small village on the island La Tortue, to reunite with his father, hopefully before it is too late.
