Join us for the screening of Rockstone and Fire, directed by Courtney Coke, Founding Member of the Wattle and Red Earth Collective. The documentary illustrates an approach to preservation anchored by architectural landmarks, but expands to fully incorporate the culture and heritage of rural Jamaica. Following the documentary, audience members will hear from Sarah Ann Hodges, FJIA, and Peter J. Francis, mJIA of the Wattle and Red Earth Collective who helped launch the film in March 2019.
