Harris Entertainment presents “Perfect Feet” the Movie; One Man’s Journey to find the perfect set of feet. This is the latest release from Calvin Dwight Harris, award winning filmmaker; since his last film On The Wings of Men (2012). The film will premiere at the Bahamas International Film Festival on Thursday November 29th, 2018 at 11 am at Galleria Cinemas (Screen B) and Friday November 30th, 2018 at the Baha Mar Convention Center at 7 pm (Inagua Room).
Harris Entertainment, in conjunction with the release of the film, has collaborated with several medical professionals and the Bahamas Diabetic Association to launch a national campaign, to sound the alarm and raise awareness to the horrible impact Diabetes is having in the Bahamas. As it stands right now, the Bahamas has the highest rate per capita for Type 2 Diabetes in the region. There is an average of one thousand amputations per year in the country, that are directly linked to Diabetes. The statistics are truly alarming.
"Our overall objective is to not just raise awareness, but to also offer solutions with regards to preventative measures that can be taken. The movie will explore the dramatic effects that diabetes can have on a person’s foot," said Harris.
Part proceeds from the ticket sales will be used to purchase medical supplies for the Bahamas Diabetic Association. Tickets can be purchased online HERE.
