Overview

People living secret lives are confronted by love and betrayal in this drama. Johnny (Johnny Ferro) is an American student who has enrolled at an art school in the Bahamas. While Johnny's work reveals impressive technique, his instructors feel his art lacks passion and he needs to get in better touch with his emotions. What they don't know is Johnny has a secret -- he's gay, but hasn't come out of the closet, and doesn't believe it's prudent in the Bahamas, where homophobia is widespread. In search of inspiration, Johnny takes a trip to the island of Eleuthera, and on the ferry he meets Romeo (Stephen Tyrone Williams), a handsome local man with whom he strikes up a friendship. Before long, Johnny and Romeo are more than friends, but like Johnny, Romeo isn't willing to open up to most people about his sexuality, allowing his mother to believe he's straight. Meanwhile, also spending some time in Eleuthera is Lena (Margaret Laurena Kemp), the wife of Ralph Mackey (Mark Ford), a minister who is outspoken in his opposition to gay rights. Lena has taken part in her husband's campaigns to demand more laws against homosexual conduct, but she's begun to have her doubts -- she's been given a sexually transmitted disease by her husband, who refuses to say how he contracted it, and she wonders if it's time she moved on with her life. Children of God was the first feature film from writer and director Kareem Mortimer.

Originally a wonderful short movie called FLOAT, CHILDREN OF GOD is a moving, thought-provoking, funny and brilliantly poetic love story. Set in the idyllic world of the Bahamas, a blocker painter (Johnny Ferro) searches for inspiration for his painting but instead finds inspiration in the arms of another lost soul (Stephen Tyrone Williams). Director Kareem Mortimer has set this beautiful story in an island paradise. But the characters he has created keep finding ways to keep paradise from coming true for them. The acting in this movie is revelatory. All of he performances are top notch, especially those by Johnny Ferro, Stephen Tyrone Williams and Margaret Laurena Kemp. The camera especially loves the beautiful and sensuous Stephen Tyrone Williams. This movie is a work of art that should be seen by everyone. Bravo to all involved.
