Director(s) Bio:: Filmmaker, Writer, Director, and Producer Patrick Jerome has made feature-length movies, short films, documentaries, music videos, and television programming since 1991. These cinematic offerings have received praise from audiences, and Bway 7 Productions continues to produce entertaining and powerful films.

In 1991, Jerome made his first full-length feature film, Ruthless Gang, set in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, about the insecurity in Haitian society. After a bloody military coup, the newly created regime moved to ban Patrick’s film and hunted him down to suppress the views he expressed. After hiding for 18 months, Patrick fled to the United States in 1993 and was granted political asylum. He then moved to Boston and has based his film company here since then.
From 1993 to the present, Bway 7 Productions has produced more than thirty music videos for artists in North and South America and the Caribbean. Some have been broadcasted on Boston Station WCEA-TV, as well as nationally on BET (Black Entertainment Television).

In 2002, this film was also presented at the New York International Film Festival, the Las Vegas Film Festival, and the Los Angeles International Film and Video Festival.
