EMERGING DEMOCRACIES IN THE CARIBBEAN & LATIN AMERICA, FACE ONE OF THE SINGLE MOST CHALLENGES OF OUR TIMES: CRIME & VIOLENCE.
The healtheir the democracy, the higher the crime rate. This Global social phenomenon has risen to an all time high, like NEVER before!
In Jamaica, with it's intense transition and pressures to emerge as a successful economy and where its people are constantly fighting for a better balance of power and market share,a paradox of serious inequalities have risen. Hundreds and thousands of people are still without basic necessities, food, education, basic human rights and economic empowerment, hence the high crime rate.
Despite the difficulties, The 'Kingston Paradise' Film hopes to perhaps inspire, particularly our urban global Youth into realsing that they can still in an honest way, ASPIRE & DREAM for a life that's rightfully theirs!!
