Sprinter

Dir. Storm Saulter 
2019, 112min
With Lorraine Toussaint, David Alan Grier, Bryshere Y. Gray

 

Storm Saulter, a leading light of contemporary Jamaican cinema, directs this rousing underdog tale of Akeem, a talented high school runner who must rise above a turbulent home life on his way to becoming the country’s next track and field star. Pulsing with color, movement, and music—and featuring a cameo from none other than Usain Bolt—Sprinter is both a multidimensional portrait of a young man finding his way and a vibrant celebration of Jamaican culture.

 
The Deliverer

Dir. Ron Morales
Trinidad, 2018, 13min 

 

When a desperate fisherman fails to stop a corrupt government from destroying his village, he brokers a deal with a mysterious drug runner to traffic cocaine across Serpents Mouth, the perilous sea between Trinidad and Venezuela, to save his home.

Post-screening Q&A with filmmakers Storm Saulter and Paul Pryce.
