Photos of Guyana – by Francis Quamina Farrier

 Photos of Guyana – by Francis Quamina Farrier

A photo of a bird’s eye view of Georgetown could be so Beautiful; but it is a different scene on the ground. As the saying goes, a picture is like a thousand words, and I’ve decided to submit a few of the photos of Georgetown taken in July, 2014, on the ground.

Tin City Voices – Ghetto life in Guyana – documentary

The story of rebirth in the confines of poverty! …. in Guyana

‘Tin City Voices’ is the story of survival in a third world slum. Filmmaker Elijah Marchand explores a shantytown in Georgetown, Guyana. We discover an abused woman, a pregnant mother, and a man struggling to find redemption for his violent life. Their lives do not intersect but run parallel. Through a stirring story about rebirth and forgiveness amongst despair and violence, we uncover the psychological environment that confines those in the ghetto.

Thanks to Rosaliene Bacchus for making me aware of this video.
