Tuesday, April 21: ‘The Abominable Crime’ Kicks Off Pulitzer Center Film Series at New York’s Paley Center


The Abominable Crime, the award-winning documentary on homophobia in Jamaica by director Micah Fink, kicks off the Pulitzer Center’s film series at New York’s Paley Center for Media on Tuesday, April 21.

Following the screening, Fink will discuss the film along with Pulitzer Center Managing Director Nathalie Applewhite and human rights lawyer Maurice Tomlinson, whose story is featured in the film. The documentary explores the culture of homophobia in Jamaica through the eyes of gay Jamaicans who are forced to choose between their homeland and their lives after their sexual orientations are exposed.

There will also be a reception after the film.

The Abominable Crime trailer is available to view on Vimeo.

The event is free and open to the public, but please RSVP on Eventbrite. Check the center’s website for more information on this and other films in the series. For questions, you can reach the center via a contact form on the site.
