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.”
