"After the many years of hard work that went into the production of Cargo, it’s really exciting to celebrate the Bahamian premiere of the film with the cast and crew,” stated Alexander Younis, Cargo Producer. “This will be the first time that some of the cast will watch the film in a theatrical setting so it’s a very special moment and we’re happy to share this film with the Bahamian audience.”

Haitian actor and model Jimmy Jean-Louis, best known for his role as "the Haitian" on the NBC television series Heroes, plays Jean, a Haitian migrant who trusts Kevin and ends up regretting it.
