Film Cargo Explores Haitian Immigration to the Bahamas
Nassau-based filmmaker Kareem J. Mortimer has released his film Cargo, which screened at the Miami Film Festival. The film’s main character is an American expat living in the Bahamas who smuggles Haitian immigrants to that island. This isn’t the first time the filmmaker has explored this theme. He previously released Passage through his production company Best Films.

In interviews the filmmaker has given about the genesis of the film, he’s stated that witnessing the burial of dead bodies washing up at the Bahamian shores was instrumental in his producing the film.

The film cargo stars Omar Dorsey, Warren Brown, Gessica Geneus, and Jimmy Jean-Louis.
