The Journal (USA, 2015, 6m)
By Indrani Kopal and Derek Burrows

When Master storyteller and Bahamian musician, Derek Burrows rediscovered a time capsule in his basement, it took him back to his freshman year, 1974; the year he first arrived in the US to study music at Berklee College of Music in Boston. The numerous handwritten scribbles about his life - thoughts, people, music notes, appointment, events, poetic observations - the 40 year old journal entries evoked many memories that he kept away for decades.
