Caribbean Film Series:
A 5th Anniversary Festival
March 14 - 17, 2019
From Thursday, March 14 through Sunday, March 17, Caribbean Film Academy, The Luminal Theater, Third Horizon, and BAM Film present Caribbean Film Series: A 5th Anniversary Festival, a four-day festival marking the five-year anniversary of the Caribbean Film Series, a platform for fresh and contemporary films from the Caribbean and its diaspora. In shorts, narrative feature films, and documentaries from Jamaica, Haiti, Puerto Rico, the U.K., and more, the series explores the thematic and aesthetic diversity of Caribbean cinema.
Cinema Tropical is proud to be a presenting partner for a number of Spanish-speaking and Latino influence films in the Festival, including the moving Puerto Rican historical sovereignty documentary 1950: The Nationalist Uprising (Davila Marichal, 2017); the Victor Jara Collective’s, The Terror and the Time (1978) and In the Sky’s Wild Noise (1983), two thorough and poetic examinations of Guyana’s colonial and political heritage, inspired by the legacy of the eponymous Chilean folk singer and dissident; and the critically-regarded Dominican crime fable Cocote (De los Santos Arias, 2017).
