The Caribbean Film Academy and Third Horizon Media, as producers of Miami’s Third Horizon Caribbean Film Festival, are proud to co-present the world premiere of Kareem Mortimer’s latest film, “CARGO,” at the 2017 Miami International Film Festival.
Written and directed by Kareem, “CARGO,” examines the world’s refugee crisis from a Bahamian perspective.
SYNOPSIS: When his income as a fisherman proves woefully insufficient to cover his son’s school fees, Kevin turns to human smuggling in order to raise desperately needed funds. Kevin finds that he’s good at this dangerous yet profitable vocation—good enough to trust himself with smuggling his own girlfriend and her son to the US. But when faced with having to abandon refugees at sea far from Miami shores, Kevin is suddenly forced to reassess his responsibilities.
The film will be shown on March 5, at 6pm, at Regal 17. You can purchase your ticket here.
