2017 I USA, Jamaica I 121 min I 9PM
Directed by Max Arthur Mantle
With VISIBLE, Jamaican-born filmmaker and writer Max-Arthur Mantle creates a documentary conceived from his debut novel “Batty Bwoy,” which taps growing up gay in Jamaica's homophobic society, and exploring his identity in the US. In the film, Mantle focuses on the experiences of LGBTQ people from the Caribbean living in the diaspora. The subjects share their unscripted portraits and narratives. Their experiences include homophobia, transphobia, lesbophobia, and biphobia, coming out, and living their truth in more accepting spaces in North America.
