Poverty in Paradise Documentary

April 28, 2011

Good Afternoon,

The Coalition for the Protection of Children, in conjunction with Afflare Films, cordially invites you to the World Premiere of our documentary “Poverty in Paradise: the Price We Pay“.

The documentary explores the causes and consequences of the widening gap between Bermuda’s wealthy and poor, the struggles families face in providing for themselves and their children and the consequential spiral in crime plaguing the community. In 2000, 50% of Black Female headed households with children were living at or below the poverty line and increasingly families are finding it impossible to afford basic necessities such as rent, food and electricity bills. The documentary gives a voice to the lives of homeless, low-income and working class mothers, addressing assumptions held by many as to why particular people live in poverty. Our hope is to affect the social and political will, transforming the way Bermudians understand their community and influencing the necessary policies to put Bermuda on a more positive and prosperous path for all.

 

Below is the trailer for the film. Please take a moment to watch.
