“ARROW’s” Jimmy Jean-Louis, Warren Brown Star In “Cargo,” This June

A sensitive fisherman transforms into a prolific human smuggler to pay his debts in “a must see film*” inspired by true events.

When his income as a fisherman proves woefully insufficient to cover his son’s school fees, Kevin turns to human smuggling in order to raise desperately needed funds. Kevin finds that he’s good at this dangerous yet profitable vocation—good enough to trust himself with smuggling his own girlfriend and her son to the US. But when faced with having to abandon refugees at sea far from Miami shores, Kevin is suddenly forced to reassess his responsibilities. Inspired by true events, Cargo examines the world’s refugee crisis from a very local perspective. The largest Bahamian film project to date, this latest feature from Kareem J. Mortimer is a thrilling, vital call for empathy in troubled times.

Written and directed by Kareem Mortimer, and also starring Gessica Geneus, Persia White (“The Vampire Diaries”), Omar J. Dorsey (Halloween), and Jamie Donnelly (Black Mass), Cargo dives into theaters May 30.
