Film shoot: Saturday, July 21, 2018
Doris McCarthy Gallery

Artist Alyssa Bistonath is casting 100 Guyanese people of all ethnicities and ages for the final scenes of “Portals” — a documentary/science fiction film about the Guyanese diaspora. The film will be projected on the Scarborough Civic Centre during Nuit Blanche on September 29, 2018.

On Saturday, July 21, come out to the Doris McCarthy Gallery for a half hour between 9AM and 7PM in your favourite outfit, whether it is jeans and a t-shirt, a ball gown, your outfit from Caribana, a suit, or a sari. Each participant will be filmed portrait style against a green screen and the final result will be a parade showing how wonderful and diverse the Guyanese community truly is.

Food and drink will be provided. Please RSVP to alyssa@alyssabistonath.com and you will be contacted in order to set up a time.
