On 14th June, I’ll be hosting a very special Cocktails & Conversations. This time we’ll be looking at parental migration and the impact on the children left behind. At the center of this Cocktails & Conversations will be the screening of Scars of Our Mothers’ Dreams. Scars of Our Mother’s Dreams is a documentary that explores the impact of parental migration. The film is written and directed by filmmaker Meschida Philip, a Grenadian living in the US. Following the 12 minute film, we’ll have an open Q and A discussion with the Meschida.
This is a must attend event for all the “barrel children”and those impacted by economic and parental migration. This promises to be transformative as the discussion will focus on Trans-national family structures, the material gains verses the emotional baggage that comes with migration.
