Directed by Vashti Anderson | 2017

With Vanna Vee Girod, Jeremy Thomas, Dino Maharaj, Nickolai Salcedo

Asha is an adrift young girl living amid the ruins of a coconut plantation in rural Trinidad. Seeking her roots, she finds herself drawn to a young fisherman who shares her desire to look beyond. As their attraction deepens, she must navigate racial taboos, family disapproval, political turmoil, and mysterious hauntings from ancestral spirits. Vashti Anderson’s feature film debut, which was a selection at the 2017 LA Film Festival, is an intense blurring of reality, fantasy, superstition, and truth.

Coast
Dir. Nile Saulter, 2010, 10min
Patasha is called upon to make a routine delivery to a young tourist couple, but finds herself drawn into a situation that will test her morality. Meanwhile, young spear fisherman Samson also wants to make a transaction, but his is of a more sinister nature. This short film examines choices, capturing the polarity of how ugly or beautiful Jamaica can be.

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.
