Four Days In May  Jamaica, United States / 2018 / 40 mins

FOUR DAYS IN MAY:  WEST KINGSTON 2010 is a collaborative,, experimental documentary that focuses on the 2010 State of Emergency in West Kingston, Jamaica, during which the military and police forces attempted to apprehend Christopher "Dudus" Coke, who had been ordered for extradition to the United States to stand trial for gun- and drug-related charges.  The "Tivoli Incursion," as it is locally dubbed, resulted in the deaths of at least 75 civilians.  The film features cmmunity residents talking about their experiences during the operation, and naming and memorializing loved ones they lost.  Through the use of archival film and photographs, footage from the U.S. drone that was overhead during the operation, and contemporay hyper-realist film photography of the "garrison" of Tivoli Gardens, it encouages viewers to think about how people negotiate the entanglements among nationalist governments, imperialist practices, and local articulations with illicit international trades.
