Nassau, Bahamas - Bahamian Short Film on Multiple Sclerosis premieres Thursday, May 10 at 6pm College of The Bahamas Harry C. Moore Library

The short film “Sudden Onset” written and directed by Bahamian Katherine Beneby II will premier at the College of The Bahamas Harry C. Moore Library and Information Centre on Thursday May 10 at 6pm with guest presenter Dr. Charles Rahming and Host for the evening Jerome Sawyer. An educational forum will follow the film.

After her brother David Beneby Jr. was diagnosed almost 15 years ago, writer and director Beneby became impassioned with a desire to educate and inform Bahamians on Multiple Sclerosis which is a disease that influences the central nervous system and affects 2.5 million people worldwide.

The short film features Bahamian talent and it creatively enlightens viewers about the disease in an informative yet entertaining way. With World MS Day rapidly approaching on May 30, 2012, it is Beneby's hope that launching this film will build momentum and support for those living with Multiple Sclerosis.
