Art For Social Change

Synopsis:  

There are many similarities between the story of A Winter Tale and the present-day realities of crime and gun violence in Jamaica. Michael, an inner-city Kingstonian youth, is so moved by the film's relevance to issues in his own community and life that he decides to take the initiative to arrange a screening within his community. The documentary shows how powerful film can be used as a tool for discussion. It also shows how it can strengthen the efforts of young people who want to take their lives into their own hands in order to change their environment.
