Virgin Islands Movie Creates ‘Timeless’ Impression in Atlanta
The Virgin Islands movie ‘Timeless‘ premiered at a best in class event at the Porter Sanford Auditorium on Friday March 24th in Atlanta. The movie was filmed in the Virgin Islands, starred Virgin Islands talent, showcased Virgin Islands culture and was directed and produced by , you guessed it, the movie elite of the Virgin Islands . The red carpet premier event exemplified class from start to finish and highlighted some of Virgin Islands premium talent such as reggae artiste, Pressure, members of the Timeless cast and the director himself, Ed La Borde.
Before the actual movie started, guests were invited to visit vendor booths in the well decorated auditorium as the strains of music from the DJ Culture Shock resonated. As the evening progressed, speakers from Beautiful Dreamers, Ltd. and 340 MEN, Inc., gave an overview of their respective non profit organizations. This movie was selected as a fundraising project for these organizations in an effort to raise funds to meet the educational and mental health needs of youths in the Virgin Islands and neighboring communities. The speakers then invited the very engaging moko-jumbie dancer to come to the stage.
As the crowd dribbled into the main auditorium for the actual movie, they were in for yet another treat as traditional Virgin Islands Quadrille dancers took everyone on a journey back to the islands. By the time the movie started, everyone was in a relaxed mindset and ready to take the mental trip to the beautiful islands and were they in for a treat. From start to finish, Timeless the movie delivered. An engaging plot, professional editing and convincing acting were presented to the audience all wrapped up in the beautiful bow of showcasing the culture of the Virgin Islands. This movie left a ‘TIMELESS’ impression on the Atlanta community and is definitely a movie you do not want to miss!
