The Caribbean International Film Fest continues with four thought-provoking tales of opportunity and resilience.
Ti Toya - (Haiti)
Director: Michel Dessources Jr
When a stranger crosses the path of Ti Toya, a young country girl, he wishes to take advantage of her as easy prey. However, he quickly learns there is more to someone than meets the eye.
Homecoming Poetry Video (Jamaica/UK)
Director: J Chambers, Aongola Victor Simuyemba
Homecoming is part of a viewer audio visual album exploring the filmmaker’s relationship with his Caribbean heritage, simultaneously documenting and examining the surge of feelings awakened upon returning to Jamaica as an adult.
Director: Nadia Charlery
A New Year's Eve party in Martinique involving friends and champagne lead to an innocent game, unexpected reactions and questioned relationships. Between good-natured teasing and rising tensions, who will still be at the table to hear the twelve strokes of midnight?
My Maxi (Trinidad and Tobago)
Director: Andrei Pierre
How (Not) to Build a School in Haiti
Director: Jack C. Newell
Development, history and colonialism collide when a seemingly simple aid project spirals out of control in Haiti. When a headstrong American clashes with a Haitian leader it forces a reckoning on privilege and power.
