Since the start of the global recession the Bahamas has been gripped by a crime wave. Brutal acts of murder and rape have shocked and dismayed many. The violent crimes being committed in the country are almost exclusively the actions of males under the age of 36. There is no simple solution to crime in any society nor is there a single cause for criminal behavior. However, it is widely believed that the absence of a positive father figure in the home and of male role models generally, contributes to male dysfunction. In The Bahamas, where most children are born out of wedlock and most live with just one parent, normally the mother, this factor seems crucial. But is that all there is to it?
This documentary explores the issue of manhood in a Caribbean nation at a crossroads. It delves deeply into the dynamics of Bahamian family relations, relations that contribute to male absenteeism in the home. It seeks to discover the degree to which violent behavior in males can be linked to the Bahamian notion of masculinity and to the roles males play or fail to play in the lives of their sons, brothers, wives, daughters, sisters and friends.
How does a boy learn to be a man? What does it mean to be a man
in the Caribbean? What role does a mother play in rearing a son? How does one know how to be a father or husband if one has never seen one close up? How do media and social constructions of gender affect male identity formation?
By way of interviews with experts and the personal stories of interviewees, the film tries to answer what is arguably one of the most intriguing questions facing Bahamians in the 21st century: “What, if anything, is wrong with our men?” Sociologists, psychologists, pastors, counselors, educators, and ordinary citizens from a range of age groups and social backgrounds give their take. The film strives is to be balanced and thorough; not to demonize men but to get at the truths of the male experience in a rapidly changing postcolonial society.
Marital rape, homosexuality, machismo, crime, race, class, patriarchy, urbanization and media are all discussed in engaging interviews.

"Trapped" is a stage play written and directed by Bahamian Playwright Adrian Wildgoose. The story is a dynamic twist of plots about Bahamian life in a small community in Nassau, Bahamas. The main character Deno, faces a hard time in his life where everything seems to all go wrong at one time and he sees no way out.
Growing up was never easy and it’s like we have to try to win with the cards we are dealt. No matter what cards we get! Trapped explores the interplay of life struggles, important relationships,... and the border life between doing what you have to do and what you need to do. Set during this present 21st century in The Bahamas, the stage play “Trapped” focuses on the issues that are a result of the decisions we make in life that we never regret but hate paying for. The two act “dramedy” immediately tells the story of young Deno Turnquest who grew up without a father with a mother Ava that lives with serious health issues but also in denial about her reality.
The action alternates between a scenes revealing Deno’s strained relationship with himself due to his inability to earn an honest living and his friends and family that constantly tempt him to stray from what he feels is the best thing for him to do. The Haitian/Bahamian characters of Shante’ and Zoe add a dynamic twist to the plot after Shante’ is hired to watch over Ava against her will. The facts of the play are derived from real people who volunteered their lives and secrets in the form of the characters in the play. The characters are real people, the story is fictional but the clash is powerful, funny and inspiring.
The play will take place at the National Performing Arts Center on Shirley Street, Nassau, Bahamas from September 13 – 15, 2013. Tickets will go on sale Monday August 18, 2013 ($20.adv. $25 door.) Visit the Facebook page for more information.
