Guyanese, Trinidadian, and Jamaican cricket enthusiasts received a surprise today: Anthony Weiner.
The former Congressman, who is limping along in the polls, took his mayoral campaign to members of Queens’s West Indian community, where he said he hopes to scrounge up votes just a couple of days before Tuesday’s Democratic primary.
His pitch, he explained, was the same to the Guyanese community as to all voters.
Well-intentioned but so clumsily executed by Indo-Guyanese writer-director Shundell Prasad that whole scenes seem to be missing, Festival of Lights is about the plight of Indian immigrants from the South American country of Guyana in their daunting efforts to assimilate in the U.S. It opens our eyes to a subculture about which most of us know very little, but it is so unsteady in its focus that interest wanes.
