trinidad+tobago film festival 2010 screening
|USA / Jamaica
Rose Murray is a self-taught photographer now in the golden years of her life. This film takes us back through the decades to Kingston, Jamaica, where as the wife of the British High Commissioner Rose first picked up a camera in earnest. Never settling into the traditional role of a diplomat’s spouse, she instead became a chronicler of the Jamaican people. Through her art, Rose was able to create meaning not only in her life, but also in the lives of those around her.
