Hosted by Bahamian filmmaker and NAGB film programmer Travolta Cooper, the NAGB Film Series continues with an exciting doubleheader with two Bahamian films "Free Swim" and "Contact Zone.
We start the evening with Gustavius Renwick's short film "Contact Zone" which takes place in an art gallery in New York City and details the seduction and attraction between visitor and curator.
The main feature "Free Swim," an award-winning documentary film by Jennifer Galvin is about the paradox of coastal people not knowing how to swim. Taking place on the island of Eleuthera, we follow a group of kids as they overcome their fears, gain confidence and reconnect with their environment by learning to swim in open waters. With fresh memories of a friend drowning and the conflicts of growing tourism, for the children, it is not just about floating but gaining new skills for their future.
This and all screenings are free and open to the public. We will have popcorn on hand for sale. Come out and spend this wonderful fall evening with us.
