Making a movie with a lesson about crime

While the hoop dreams of the Under Fifteen National Basketball team has them reaching for the stars, the vision of a local entrepreneur also has him and some local youths in the spotlight. Back from the U.S less than three years ago, Aaron Lauriano was disheartened by the increasing number of crime he sees everyday in Belize, so he decided to send out a message by producing a movie. Cyaa tek it nuh more is a low budget movie that Lauriano says is sending out a real message to the people of Belize.

Aaron ‘Driva’ Lauriano, Producer& Director

“It’s based in on showing that sometimes we ourselves go out and do stuff to our own self. In the story line of the movie showing that there is two brothers—one is in the streets as a hustler; not even a gang member. And this person basically decide that we gwen go rob this spot—run in there and shot up that person, but going down into it, you find out that dah your own bredda yuh duh dat to.”

Andrea Polanco

“What’s your role in this movie, Cyaa tek it nuh more?”

“My role in the movie, basically I help invest in this artist because this arist neva have no way of going around an making money. Weh we woulda call cartel ina this movie, I decide to invest in this artist. And what happen is this artist get caught up ina my product then I get involved ina it. He neva had nobody to turn to so I dah mi di only defense he have. The movie goes deep to opening you guys’ eyes to street life of Belize. People usually here about Belize in terms of just listening to the news but what we do; we bring a vision—you can see it. A lot of people overwhelmed by it—[saying] yes that actually happen fi true. We take it deep, deep, deep that it actually bring reality to you.”

“Cyaa tek di violence—just basic. I think we can find a way to stop this whether we have to get to a point of start expressing it more to the people so that the people see it for themselves because by you seeing it for yourself firsthand then you wa start understand you know what make I put on my shoes and go out deh and try stop dehn bwai from fight before ih get worst. We dah just legal citizens weh do the right thing and we decide that if we take what’s right and mold it fi show people weh wrong from weh right, then we wah could make a difference.”

A release date has not been set, however Lauriano says the movie will be officially released to the public very soon.
