The Visual Life of Social Affliction presents the screening of Kareem Mortimer's "Cargo" with Q+A

Kareem Mortimer's award-winning 2017 film, Cargo, is an exemplary instance of the visual life of social affliction. In a subtle and poignant way, it portrays the complicated worlds in which Caribbean people make the precarious lives they make. A fisherman, Kevin, turns to human smuggling so as to secure the money he needs for his son's school fees.

But he soon finds that he has been drawn down a very slippery slope, and confronted with desperate choices that bring him face to face with himself. Join us on October 4th, 2019, as part of programming for the Visual Life of Social Affliction exhibition, the NAGB presents a screening of this remarkable film, followed by a conversation with Dr Ian Bethell-Bennett and Mortimer. The screening will take place in Fiona's Theatre from 8:00-10:30 p.m.
