Jamaican Film Festival Highlights the Documentary Finding Samuel Lowe
THE Chinese Benevolent Association (CBA), in association with the Institute of Jamaica (IOJ), will host a two-day film festival marking the 160th anniversary of the Chinese arrival in Jamaica.
The festival is scheduled to start at the University of the West Indies Mona Campus on Friday, and moves to the IOJ Lecture Hall, in downtown Kingston, the following day.
All events are free.
“The 160th anniversary of the arrival of the Chinese in Jamaica, is an important milestone. IOJ is pleased to partner with the Chinese Benevolent Association (CBA) and Jeanette Kong to share with and engage members of the public about the impact of the Chinese to Jamaica’s development. This will create a deeper understanding and appreciation for our multi-faceted cultural heritage and backgrounds,” Anne Marie Bonner, IOJ executive director, told the Jamaica Observer.
