San Diego, CAL - Bahamian feature family film, Wind Jammers was nominated for Best Directors and Best Comedy at the San Diego Black Film Festival over the weekend,  but lost out to a movie called The Three Way.

The screening was well attended and the audience gave Wind Jammers two thumbs up. One person said it was the best movie they saw at the festival and the only one with a happy ending.

Wind Jammers will next screen in Grand Bahama Island on February 12th at the Pelican Bay Canal House to benefit the Grand Bahama Sailing Club.

Film Synopsis: A young mixed race girl, Justice, moves to the Bahamas with her adoptive parents and experiences a new culture.  The family joins the local sailing club and discovers racial undercurrents.  Although there are no rules against black members and most of the members don’t mind, one influential member makes it difficult for the new family.  Justice joins the sailing program and meets new friends.  She loves sailing and decides to compete in the National Regatta.  A 1964 Olympic Champion in sailing is impressed by Justice and recognizes that she can help change the attitudes of his beloved Bahamas and coaches her to be a first class sailor.  Tension mounts as the influential member, worried that Justice will embarrass him, tries to get the family thrown off the island.  Meanwhile, Justice meets a Bahamian boy and the two teach each other about their different cultures.  In the end, Justice inspires everyone to rise above their petty differences and unites them as one people.  One Bahamas!
