The screening of The Abominable Crime, a documentary, is part of the Geopolitics of LGBT Rights Forum Series being held over the course of 2015 by the Center for Transatlantic Relations at Johns Hopkins SAIS.

The Abominable Crime is a Pulitzer Center supported, award-winning documentary produced by Micah Fink that explores the culture of homophobia in Jamaica through the eyes of gay Jamaicans who are forced to choose between their homeland and their lives after their sexual orientations are exposed.

A Q&A with the filmmaker Micah Fink and an activist and film subject Maurice Tomlinson will follow the screening.


"The issues dealt with by The Abominable Crime are not just relevant to Jamaica, in which the film is set, but also internationally where laws are being enacted in many countries to inflict the most inhumane and violent penalties on same sex relationships."

 

AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS PRIZE.
