Place The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas


The Education Department of the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas has chosen Bahamian filmmaker Calvin Harris' film “On the Wings of Men” to be the first in a series of films under the current exhibition, “As We Knew Him," One Family’s Tribute to Jackson Burnside III. This film was chosen because it combines Bahamian history and culture which were two of Burnside's greatest passions. This film received strong support from the community, thus earning it the Best Documentary under the Audience Awards at the 2011 Bahamas International Film Festival.

This film will look at the life & time of the first ever Prime Minister of the Bahamas; Sir Lynden Oscar Pindling, and his fight against US foreign policies in the 1980's [then Presidents Reagan & Bush Administration]. In his successful attempt the help free Nelson Mandela, he found himself in the midst of a conspiracy trail, orchestrated by the CIA, that accused him of ties to the Columbian Cartel [Carlos Rivas Ledher & Pablo Escobar] and for being the conduit [The Bahamas] to America's cocaine problems in the 1980s.
