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.

VISIBLE is groundbreaking in its celebration of the lives and accomplishments of Caribbean LGBTQ, many who fled their homes and survived against odds.
— Antione Craigwell, Producer, "You Are Not Alone" (documentary)
