New Feature Film Is a “Virgin Islands Love Story” 

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - August 30, 2023

A new film coming to Amazon Prime next month puts the US Virgin Islands at the front and center. 

“Timeless: A Virgin Islands Love Story,” written and directed by Edward La Borde, Jr, will come to Amazon Prime on Sept. 6, telling the story of two love stories set in different eras. 

The first is the tale of Ajuwa, a young Ghanaian warrior who loses her soul mate to the solace trade; the two lovers’ souls reunite in the present as Malinda Benjamin, a Senator in the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Alphonse Walcott, a writer returning home to the USVI from New York. 

When Alphonse then falls in love with Bianca, an illegal immigrant from the Dominican Republic, a “transcendental love triangle” is revealed. 

The film was entirely produced and shot in the Virgin Islands. 

“The story started with visions of life in Africa in the 1800s, the true history of slavery, and a slave girl running from the storm. Then I became passionate about telling a love story between a regular guy and a girl who felt ashamed of her circumstances. Inspired by the movie ‘Black Orpheus,’ I created my own tale and connected the parallels through a storyteller and lucid dreams,” La Borde said. 

The cast comprised local actors, with filming locations ranging from the Whim Museum in St Croix to Lindquist Beach in St Thomas. 

The cast includes K’misha-Victoria Counts, Brummell Germain, Monai Greene, Julien Baa, Sulay Peñalo, Elaine Jacobs, Bianca Castillo, Shanaka Harris, Margarite Aqustine, Laurel Samuel, and Americo Cabrera.

“We are thrilled to see the Virgin Islands showcased in such a captivating production,” said US Virgin Islands Commissioner of Tourism Joseph Boschulte. “’Timeless captures the essence of our islands’ history, culture, and natural beauty, and we look forward to sharing this story with the world.”
