Greetings videolibbers,

I'm having trouble identifying a documentary that a faculty member is looking for.  According to her, it is a film about reggae, sexuality and black politics in transnational space of New York and the Caribbean. And apparently Paul Gilroy was involved in the film, but I have no idea to what extent. Does this ring any kind of bell with anyone? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Susanna.
