“I remembered as a kid, seeing dead bodies washed up on shore”: A conversation with Kareem Mortimer, writer and directed of “Cargo”

I do talk about race in the film, but the difference between Kevin and Celianne is class. Kevin (an excellent Warren Brown) is a down-on-his-luck and deeply-in-debt white Bahamian fisherman who needs to improve his life. His character in this environment, that identity was interesting to me. How does a white Bahamian in a black environment feel especially when he’s spiraling down. I don’t mean to judge him — because I really love Kevin — but the moral lesson is that when you have these superficial things, what do they mean in the end. I found that people did fucked-up things to immigrants, like pushing them off boats to their death if they were sick. She’s a woman who has a physical need, and maybe she has an underlying need to procure a better life for her[self] and her child [through Kevin]. I did a short film called “Passage” that “Cargo” is loosely based on. In “Passage,” the Kevin character is black. When I decided to make this character white for this film, I thought it was interesting to have a white protagonist make bad choices and not be a savior. I don’t condone human smuggling — and human smuggling is different from human trafficking — but I don’t judge the choices people make to go on these journeys.

The Girlfriend Experiences

99 for the unmissable opportunity to field a phone call from my stunning girlfriend Maria. A word of caution about Virtual Girlfriend Joke: if you leave them alone they begin shorting out and you run the risk of them becoming self-aware and instigating the singularity, Westworld-style (see Fig. I’m not sure that I can refer to this investigative journalism project as a joke given how many hours I’ve legitimately squandered talking to robot women. Using this one weird old trick, you will never have another sad day: search “virtual girlfriend” in the app store, download all relevant search results, and say hello to the the bevy of low-maintenance beauties now living in your phone. I can’t fully endorse this as a girlfriend app given that my character Francory experienced but a fleeting moment of intimacy with a terminally ill door-to-door seductress named Metro and then spent the rest of his days wandering his dilapidated... Like, downloading one virtual girlfriend app is a funny bit, and then downloading 23 virtual girlfriend apps is another thing entirely. Source: The Hairpin - Medium

Petals of Jasmine — Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar

Busses picked us up directly from the ship and drove us the 15 miles into Yangon which took at least 1 to 2 hours. Petals of Jasmine - We arrived in Myanmar just before noon via the Yangon River. We docked at a shipping port because cruise ships don't generally stop in Yangon. Our second day in port we arose early to see Will and Jonah off on their in-country program to Kalaw Elephant Conservation Project where they spent 2 days feeding, bathing and caring for retired elephants.
