FILM | "Home Again"


As a part of its Caribbean Film Series, the Baobab Cultural Center will screen "Home Again" on Friday, June 20. The film stars Tatyana Ali (The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) as one of three young people deported to their homeland of Jamaica after growing up abroad. The deportees, from the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, find themselves in Kingston with no one to guide them as they attempt to forge new lives in a foreign land. Based upon real interviews conducted with Jamaican deportees, "Home Again" takes a realistic and intimate look at the difficult lives of people who often become an afterthought in the lands they are removed from.

The Caribbean Film Series, presented by the Rochester Jamaican Organization, screens films rooted in Caribbean culture in celebration of Caribbean Heritage Month. Films are shown at the Baobab Center Cultural Center, 728 University Avenue, every Friday in June at 6 p.m. "Home Again" runs on Friday, June 20. For more information call 563-2145 or visit
