Kareem Mortimer’s Short film: “Passage”

Screening of young, award-wining Bahamian filmmaker Kareem Mortimer’s short film “Passage,” which tackles the harrowing subject of immigration; the 15-minute film will be preceded by a “making-of” that explores the director’s motivation. Following the screenings, which will take place in the T1-Ballroom Gallery at 6 p.m. on Thursday, January 23rd, there will be a panel discussion, moderated by radio personality Louby Georges, host of “The Creole Connection” on Guardian Talk Radio 96.9, with participants including the film’s director; R.E. Barnes from Amnesty International; Erin Greene, the interim Deputy Chairman of CARFA; and a representative from the United Haitian-Bahamian Association. WE invite you to attend and participate in this very important discussion.
