Home Again is a 2012 Canadian drama film directed by Sudz Sutherland, shot primarily in Trinidad and Tobago and set in Kingston, Jamaica, about three people who have been deported back to Jamaica, despite having lived in Canada, United States and United Kingdom for most of their lives.[1]


Sutherland and Holness first approached the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) to make a documentary, but their proposal was declined. Instead, the NFB later supported them to do research in Jamaica for a fiction film, which included interviewing 40 deportees in Kingston and Ocho Rios.[2]
