Caribbean life in film: ‘The Mango Girl’

International feature films about life in the Caribbean are few and far between, so when a new one is announced there’s understandable interest, anticipation and excitement.

Later this year we can look forward to the planned release of ‘The Mango Girl’, by Jamaican-born author Dr Ava Eagle Brown, which is based on her successful book about her childhood in St Elizabeth in Jamaica.

Now an award-winning international speaker and life coach, as well as a single mum to two children, Dr Brown is a role model for thousands of people, and an inspiration for anyone who is struggling to see a way through their troubles.

The synopsis of the book reads: “Ava’s story starts in an area of high deprivation, even by rural Jamaica’s standards, where the need to find food often won over school attendance. Her journey through her adolescent years was dominated by the dark shadows of incest, homelessness, violence and sexual abuse.

“Ava’s life took an entirely different path when the event of being held and raped at gunpoint in front of her 3-year-old daughter finally pushed her to flee her home country to save her sanity.”

The novel focuses on Ava’s resilient approach to the terrible events that impacted her early life, as she determinedly sets about breaking the cycle of poverty, and develops into a strong, independent and self-reliant woman.

The film is being produced and distributed by New York-based company, D Street Media Group and although many of the details are yet to be finalised, it’s set to be a moving and memorable story.
