Documentary subject Giovanne Mark Hinds and producer Lesley Welsh will be in attendance at this screening.


Over four years, director Simon Sharkey worked with a group of young boys in a ghetto in Kingston, Jamaica, teaching them parkour and physical theatre. His plan was to help them find and share their story with their local community, but what transpired in the process was much more. Watch how the “Hero Journey” narrative guided the troupe through adversity, to triumph, in an international production of their own show. A truly heartwarming documentary that showcases the authentic voice of Caribbean youth, who struggle with the legacy of colonialism, poverty and lack of opportunity.
