BUEI, Pembroke: On Saturday, January 22, 2022, Phenomenal People Charity hosted a Red-Carpet Premiere of their short film, The Lost Father, to salute the cast and crew of this long-awaited production, produced by Margaret Giloth, directed by Scott Brown, and edited by Ra’ees Tankard.  The all-Bermudian cast included actors: Michael Giloth, Sarai Packwood, Juliette Rewan, Michelle Squire, Shinah Simons, Amir & Akil Squire, Delma Parfitt, Robin Ingham, Ge’Von Greaves, and Verna Jones.  Our distinguished guest, The Hon. Dr. Ernest Peets, JP commended the charity on the film’s timely message and congratulated the cast in his closing remarks.  A fashion vignette titled: Jazz is Paris served as an elegant finale.  Guests were presented with goody bags containing a hot off the press copy of Giloth’s new book: Who’s Your Daddy? 12 Steps to Rescuing the Next Generation from Father Absence Syndrome, autographed by the author.    

This was a wonderful evening; I feel elevated! C. Bassett, Patron

ABOUT THE SHORT FILM……

THE LOST FATHER short film portrays the life of a family in crisis and reveals the silent effects on the young child that all too often go unaddressed.  These effects can emerge soon or lay dormant until years later.  With a strong support system of caring, nurturing adults, the young person can go on to thrive into adulthood.  Sadly, though, too many of our youth carry the weight of their parents’ inability to provide the loving and supportive structure that is needed by every child ….and their crisis becomes the community’s crisis.  The purpose of this short film is to make us all aware that each one of us can be a positive supporter of our Island’s young people in one way or another.
