TALLAWAH ABROAD: REMEMBERING LITTLE JAMAICA
ABOUT THE FILM
Little Jamaica, a neighbourhood in Toronto’s west end, was a once thriving hub for Black and Caribbean business owners until the ills of gentrification reared its ugly head. The construction of the incoming Eglinton Crosstown LRT is shifting the dynamic of their community, changing their future and slowly erasing their presence in the process.
Sharine is a writer, producer and director. As she transitions into film through producing and directing, she’s interested in exploring and thinking through the intersection of music, culture, (un)belonging, memory, diaspora, identity and citizenship.
