About the Event
The digital revolution has seen a blossoming of Caribbean filmmaking but these films remain mostly unseen in the UK, leaving potential audiences underserved. Caribbean Calling seeks to address this. A dynamic and diverse selection of short contemporary fiction films from the islands, curated by the Twelve30 Collective, it offers a valuable, nuanced understanding of the region and its diaspora that feels especially necessary in the time of Windrush and ongoing debates around migration. In this two-part session, Twelve30 Collective’s curators Jonathan Ali and Lisa Harewood will screen the programme followed by a presentation on the current Caribbean cinema landscape.
