A Loss of Innocence: Combating Child Labour in the Caribbean
This feature is about two decades old, but the testimonials of the children still stand. The documentary was commissioned by the International Labour Organisation, so although it wasn’t independent, we tackled it guerilla production-style. Certain decisions that were out of my control still bother me from a filmmaking perspective, but this is balanced by the fact that so many unseen, unconsidered children got to have a voice.
The feature was screened at the inaugural Trinidad + Tobago Film Festival and at the UN Film Festival that same year.
