On January 18, an intimate screening of the Guyanese documentary-drama film “Echos From the Plantation” was held from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM in the auditorium, and was open to the public. The word “echos” in the title is intentionally misspelled to represent a single resonating echo instead of a group of many “echoes.” The film commemorates 180 years of Indians in Guyana, narrating a rich history taught from generation to generation until it reaches a young Indian Guyanese girl.
