    The Abominable Crime, a documentary highlighting discrimination and violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people in Jamaica, is the first recipient of the Amnesty International Human Rights Prize at trinidad+tobago film festival (ttff). Micah Fink’s documentary won unanimous praise from jurors and was awarded the prize at a ceremony in Port of Spain on 28 September.

    “The Abominable Crime distinguishes itself by making the criminalization of same sex relationships, the consequences for all LGBTI people and their strategies for survival central to its sensitive portrayal of its two main characters”, said Trinidadian filmmaker Christopher Laird for the jury, announcing the winner.
