Bio

Jik-Reuben Pringle is a Jamaican artist. He attended the University of Technology where he attained a Bachelor’s Degree in Land Surveying and Geographic Information Studies. He has been working professionally as a commercial, product and fine art photographer for the past five years and most recently started in videography and filmmaking. Pringle has been exhibiting in group exhibitions locally and in Germany since 2015. He lives and works in Kingston, Jamaica.

Kaleb D’Aguilar is a young Jamaican actor, dancer, poet, writer and artist. His passion for the arts blossomed at Ardenne High School where he was an active participant in the JCDC Speech and Drama Competitions. However, Kaleb found that he could not only perform, but also craft words into poems, short prose and even script; eventually solidifying a passion for the literary arts. Currently, Kaleb is a member of the Quilt Performing Arts Company and an undergraduate student at the University of the West Indies where he is doing a BSC in Anthropology.

About the Work

Day One is a short film about a young father who is unexpectedly left with the responsibility of caring for a newborn baby after its mother dies. The film dramatically portrays the moral dilemmas and practical challenges faced in such a situation and reflects on the challenges of fatherhood, in a social context where male parenting issues are rarely considered or represented. As Kaleb D’Aguilar states, “Day One was written as social commentary…an unexplored narrative…an unheard voice.”

  1. Big up to the young Ardennites realising their dreams! Optima proud! Optima strong! And to film maker showing them in their best light: kudos!

  2. It’s such a great idea to include this social dilemma in this exhibit. This film creatively tells the story of Baby Ava in a way that showcases her past and gives the audience hope for the future. Nice job Kaleb and Jik
