As usual Last Sundays admission is free though we are inviting donations for the Bahamas Hurricane Relief in light of the severe damage that was done to parts of the archipelago during hurricane Dorian. JAFTA is a non-profit association that represents the interests of the Film & TV industry of Jamaica inclusive of marketing Jamaican productions on the international scene.

We will be screening the following 6 films:

  • Passage directed and produced by Kareem Mortimer
  • Code directed by Sarah Manley and produced by Darin Tennent
  • Origins directed by Kurt Wright and produced by Noelle Kerr
  • A Broken Appointment directed and produced by Kaleb D’Aguilar
  • Trust directed by Jason Evans and produced by Renée Cesar
  • Flight directed by Kia Moses and Adrian McDonald and produced by Tashera Lee Johnson

Doors will open to the public from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. The screening will begin at 1:30 p.m. As is customary on Last Sundays, guided tours are free, but contributions to the Donations Box located in the Coffee Shop are appreciated. These donations help to fund our Last Sundays events. The National Gallery’s Gift Shop and Coffee Shop will also be open for business.

Ania Freer RIVER MAID 2019

Ania Freer – RIVER MAID

‘RIVER MAID is a video installation which tells the story of a woman who was abducted by a mermaid in the village of Shrewsbury Logwood, Westmoreland. This piece of work is from an ongoing series of contemporary stories and oral histories I have been collecting from remote river communities across Jamaica. My work celebrates the quiet stories, myths and folklore that may otherwise become forgotten.’
