Post-screening Q&A with Tina Charles and Rawlston Charles

Charlie’s Records

Dir. Tina Charles
2019, 110min


Rawlston Charles migrated to New York from Tobago in 1967. Living in Bedford-Stuyvesant and nostalgic for the music of his homeland, Charles made it his mission to promote calypso music and its artists in the US and around the world. In the process, he opened the world-renowned record store Charlie’s Calypso City and, with his music label Charlie’s Records, single-handedly put calypso and soca music on the map. Charlie’s Records is his remarkable story.


Dirs. Kia Moses & Adrian McDonald 
2018, 13min
