Shawn Sobers is a filmmaker, photographer, writer and lecturer.

Rob Mitchell has worked as a creative media producer of film, video and various media.

In 1999, Shawn and Rob worked together to form Firstborn Creatives, an independent production company for broadcast television, which has since established a strong reputation for using creative media to educate, entertain and give people a platform for creative expression.

Where do we meet? There will also be a gathering outside Docklands Youth Centre at 2.30pm. We will walk together to Arnolfini where the film is shown and where there will be a celebration at 3.30pm, finishing at 4pm.
