Following a sold out U.S. Premiere at the Miramar Cultural Center on March 30, the award winning Jamaican/ Canadian indie movie “Destiny” will open to general audiences on Friday, May 8 at the Regal Sawgrass Stadium 23 & Imax in the Sawgrass Mills Mall, Sunrise, Florida. The movie has received glowing reviews for its positive portrayal of Jamaica and Jamaican characters and enjoyed a record breaking box office run for over three months in the island.
Destiny chronicles the story of Lisa Pullen, played by lead actress Karian Sang, as she journeys to find herself following the death of her parents and a tumultuous break-up with her boyfriend. A trip to Jamaica to sell land acquired through inheritance leads to much more, as Lisa not only uncovers truths about her family’s past, but also finds herself while falling in love.
“We were extremely pleased and encouraged by the enthusiastic response from the audience at the U.S. Premiere in Miramar recently,” stated Jeremy Whittaker, producer/director and CEO of Grasshopper Productions. “The movie connected with the audience in Jamaica and I anticipate a similar connection with members of the Caribbean diaspora in Florida.”
