The Poetry of the Little Things: Towards a Caribbean Avant-garde Cinema

Show notes

The Caribbean has traditionally been dominated by Hollywood, and the kinds of films made by the region’s filmmakers often tends to reflect that dominance. Might there be room for other, more experimental approaches to filmmaking? In this conversation, filmmakers Miryam Charles (Haiti) and Amir Aether Valen (Trinidad and Tobago) and film programmer Jonathan Ali (Director of Programming, Third Horizon Film Festival) discuss the possibilities of a Caribbean avant-garde cinema.
