CaFA Film Nights - Guyana Edition
The Seawall
by Mason Richards

Guyana, 2011

The Seawall is a narrative short film shot entirely on location in Georgetown, Guyana, and centers around Marjorie, a Guyanese woman, as she prepares for her 10-year old grandson's move to America to be with his mother.

Beached
by Kojo McPherson
Narrative Short
Guyana, 2012

Nyoike ('Nyo'), in an attempt to get back into the rhythm of his life, returns to his bar after spreading the ashes of his wife, Hope, on the Georgetown seawall. Still reeling from the loss he is not in a hospitable mood when his longtime friend and photographer, Fargus, shows up uninvited.  Fargus fails to engage Nyo and leaves a picture he had taken of Nyo and Hope on the counter. Nyo's wedding ring, and now this picture, are all that he has left of his wife.

Tin City Voices
by Elijah Marchand
Documentary
Guyana, 2013

'Tin City Voices' is the story of survival in a third world slum. Filmmaker Elijah Marchand explores a shantytown in Georgetown, Guyana. His purpose is to find hope amongst the struggles of an unnoticed population. We discover the story of an abused woman, a pregnant mother, and a man struggling to find redemption for his violent life. Their stories do not intersect but run parallel. The film uncovers the psychological environment that confines each of the characters. As Elijah searches, camera in hand, through alleys that form the puzzle pieces of the ghetto, we are taken through a stirring story of rebirth and forgiveness amongst despair and violence.

Rebecca's Story
by the Youth of the Witness Project
Dramatic Short
Guyana, 2014

An orphaned young reader imagines escape from her grandmother's punitive custody, when a sudden visit from a neighbor reveals a better way out.
