Directed by Miquel Galofré | 2014

The powerful process of creative intervention comes to light in this new documentary from Spanish director Miquel Galofré. At Trinidad and Tobago’s Success Laventille Secondary School, a group of seven “at risk” teenagers from the disenfranchised and volatile community are recruited for a series of dynamic workshops using mural art, music, poetry, and dance to open their eyes to how art uplifts their community, family, and ultimately themselves. These young men and women are the narrators of this story, using Go-Pro cameras to expand their journeys of courage through moments of doubt and vulnerability, all culminating into a memorable conclusion sure to leave you in tears.

Screens with Lisa Harewood's Auntie (2013) 15min. When a barrel arrives from London bearing an unwelcome parcel, a caregiver in Barbados makes a hasty decision with lasting consequences.


This screening is part of the Caribbean Film Series, which presents feature films made by Caribbean filmmakers that highlight the richness, uniqueness, and viability of Caribbean cinema to Brooklyn, home to the largest population of Caribbean nationals in the United States, and to all New York City residents and visitors.  For more information visit the Caribbean Film Academy website.
