DIRECTED BY: Melissa A. GomezDocumentary | Antigua | 2008 | 38 mins | English |
Exploring the relationships between three Antiguan brothers and the unique way in which they continue to fight for a brother who was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia almost 25 years ago, the story celebrates two of the most important things in Caribbean life: family and laughter. Christopher Laird, CEO of Trinidad & Tobago’s Gayelle TV and co-founder of Banyan Productions, lauded the film as showing “great technical skill in difficult circumstances. Melissa’s efforts to delve beneath the skins and souls of macho Caribbean males demonstrates a sensitive touch and her rewards are hard won.” Awards: Best Documentary Production, Berlin Black International Cinema Festival; Best Documentary Short (Nominated), Pan African Film & Arts Festival.
