| 77 minutes | 2018
A fascinating assemblage of stories portraying multiple generations of Jamaicans, presented in three acts mirroring the three trimesters of one woman’s pregnancy. Khalik Allah transforms underrepresented stories of ordinary people into a compelling oral and visual history of a nation. A quest for identity, fierce spirituality, personal philosophies, and a struggle to overcome racism and poverty all link past and present in this country known for its abundant resources and national pride. The soul of Jamaica’s people shines through in Allah’s street photography shooting style. CANADIAN PREMIERE
