Timehri Film Festival and Red Thread Women: Crossroads Women's Centre

One of the main reasons we came back to Guyana after the Festival ended, was to host additional screenings of the film Songs Of Redemption, an Official Selection of the 2016 Festival, at the prisons in Guyana, including the Camp St. Prison. After screening the film at the Lusignan Prison, to an overwhelmingly emotional and heartwarming response from the inmates, we wanted to take the film, with its message of hope, to as many inmates as possible.

However, in light of yesterday's events, we will not be able to host these screenings this time around. Instead, in collaboration with Red Thread Women: Crossroads Women's Centre, we are hosting 2 public screenings of the film in Georgetown.

Check out the teaser below, which gives a sneak peek of what the film has to offer. Particularly at this time, it provides a great example of how the arts can be used to heal, and while we watch these inmates deal with doing their time, we too can experience the message of hope their stories send.

First Screening, will be on Wednesday, July 12, at 6:00PM, at Dutch Bottle Cafe.

Second Screening, will be on Friday, July 14, at 6:00PM, in the Conference Room at the National Library of Guyana.

We hope to see you there!

#CaFACinemaNights is back. For this, the Fifth Edition of the 2017 Series, we will be featuring,

A BETTER PLACE
by Carver Bacchus and Miquel Galofré
Trinidad & Tobago, 2015

Directed by award-winning filmmaker Miquel Galofré (@trinidadandtobagorocks) and produced by Sustain T&T’s own Carver Bacchus (@c_atiba.bacchus), “A Better Place,” takes the viewer to five communities in Trinidad and Tobago, where people are doing great things, charting their own course and inspiring others to do the same. Each of the featured organizations are also supported by UNDP, GEF, and SGP. The film also features musical performances from home- grown talent.

Infused with local music, stunning visuals complement stories of hope, resilience and survival.

preceded by the short film

AWA BRAK (BRACKISH WATER)
by Juan Francisco Pardo
Aruba, 2012

AWA BRAK (Brackish Water) tells the story of a young woman, Glenda, who lives in a wooden house on the beach. She survives on fish, water and memories. Her search for herself is an intricate game of coping with the past and luring the infinite future.

#CaFACinemaNights, is made possible with public funds from the Decentralization Program of the New York State Council on the Arts, administered in Kings County by Brooklyn Arts Council. #welovecaribbeanfilm 🇹🇹🇦🇼
