St. Maarten News – Atahlia Daye Rogers is a teacher at the Sundial School and has produced a film called Mother Knows Best. Daye-Rogers is a local Sint Maartener, an entrepreneur, a poet, a playwright, a script writer, and as of late a film producer.
Mother Knows Best is about a single mother, raising her daughter on the principles of the word of God. Haunted by the memories of the past, she is faced with the struggles of modern day motherhood.
Through it all, both mother and daughter have learned the true meaning of shame, regret, forgiveness, love, family and moving on.
“I have selected to donate to this project from my initiative to give back to the community due to its educational and biblical contribution to society,” Independent MP Leona Marlin-Romeo said in a press statement.
“I endorse this project as it promotes biblical principles and how to overcome adversity using this medium. I urge the public to support Daye Rogers positive contribution to society. She wants to start a Drama Club in Sint Maarten where the youths and young adults can receive training and develop their skills in acting.”
Mothers Knows Best will be screened at the Philipsburg Cultural Center from May 19 to 22.
