Moviegoers and specially invited guests were treated to a sneak peek at Hush 2: End The Silence on Tuesday at the Palace Cineplex, Sovereign Centre.

Hush 2: End The Silence
is a Barbadian film which deals with issues of sexual abuse, drugs and violence affecting Caribbean youth. It also looks at how young people deal with these issues and encourages them to end the silence and seek healing.

Paparazzi treatment

Three of the cast members, Lesley Cumberbatch, Claudette Wadman and Nichola MacDonald, along with writer/producer Marcia Weekes, got the non-stop paparazzi treatment from eager patrons. Some of those attending had watched
Hush 1
and were eager to see its sequel.

Hush 2
will be released islandwide on March 3 and will be shown at individual schools, starting March 5. The premiere was presented by the Students Christian Fellowship and Scripture Union in partnership with Step by Step Productions, a Barbadian film and production company. Representatives from local sponsors, Jamaica Broilers Group and National Commercial Bank, were also on hand.
