75 SHOTS was conceived by film poet, Karin Hazé. On April 26, 2016, in the Chambers of the Supreme Court of Jamaica, she bared witness to submissions given against the anti-sodomy archaic law of 1861 being rejected by the judge. As a member of the Jamaican Diaspora, she was compelled to take immediate action & boldly demonstrated in one the most homophobic countries in the World and protested for LGBTQ+ people's rights, at Emancipation Parc in downtown Kingston, JA.
She uses her activism to teach courageous participants basic filmmaking skills free-of-charge. Her unique program is designed for LGBTQ+ people living in 70+countries in the World, where it’s still illegal to be gay.
One shot at a time, successful participants develop their imagination, creativity, self-esteem and employability skills , as they receive theoretic & hands-on smartphone filmmaking training.
