Tomorrow night features another film in the Trylon's Premiere Tuesday series with two screenings of Wah Do Dem, a story about young love gone sour resulting in some extraordinary missteps while on a cruise to Jamaica.
Co-created by Ben Chace and Sam Fleischner, Wah Do Dem features musicians Sean Bones in the lead role Max, and Norah Jones as his girlfriend Willow, who dumps him two days before their Caribbean cruise vacation. Alone and brokenhearted, Max goes on the cruise alone, venturing into a world of planned activities and throngs of senior citizens, without purpose.
But when the ship docks in Jamaica, Max takes the opportunity to see a more authentic part of the country, only to end up robbed and stranded after he misses the boat. Max decides to head towards Kingston on foot in order to get to the American Embassy. On the way the unexpected ensues, along with a performance by the legendary reggae group the Congos.
The film touches on the themes of resilience, hope, and self-awareness as the main character Max makes his way through the complicated ups and downs of life. The Jamaican culture and people in the film add a refreshing take on an otherwise common film story with the main character gaining insight into themselves via foreign travel.
The film will screen at the Trylon on Tuesday night at 7 and 8:40 p.m. Tickets are $8 each, and can be purchased online.
