The documentary "Songs Redemption" has won three major awards at film festivals in Los Angeles, Toronto and Trinidad. It follows the story of five inmates who participated in an EU funded rehabilitation programme at the Tower Street Adult Correctional Facility in Kingston, Jamaica. It shows the day to day experiences and challenges of the inmates, the circumstances that brought them in conflict with the law but also the hope that the rehabilitation programme nurtures. The rehabilitation program in Jamaica is funded by the EU through its European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR) in five correctional institutions. The public showing in Belize, organised by the EU Delegation, follows on a similar initiative with the documentary in Jamaica.
