A Review: Canadian Premiere of film "Deep Blue" at COMMFFEST, Global Film and Arts Festival, at the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts, 09/16/2023.

"Deep Blue" is a powerful, timely, and socially relevant fifth feature film from the HAMA film team of Howard and Mitzi Allen, filmmakers from Antigua and Barbuda. Set on a small Caribbean island, it sends a clear message that "paradise is not merchandise." It's a cautionary tale illustrating what happens when the intersectionality of foreign and domestic wealthy, self-interest groups, operating in a milieu of corruption, greed, lies and deception meet local opposition focused on the impact that unsustainable development would have on the environment and future economic and social viability of community, some members of which only see the flash and cash of 'development.'
"Deep Blue" is a movie worthy of wide distribution and commercial success. ~ Howard D. Queeley, Canadian writer and author of "Script Writer- A journey of Creative Expression."

NOTE: Queeley attended the screening and posted his review on Instagram. (shared with permission)
