LUSO Trinidad


A short film that I am currently working on. It will be screened in May at the National Museum. More details will come soon!

Synopsis
Luso Trinidad: Home in the land of the Homeless* is a preliminary investigation into ‘whiteness’ and Luso-Trinidadian identity. This project begins to address prejudice in Trinidad that manifests itself the form of class and colour bias. Video interviews, animation, photo-manipulation and old film are combined to construct the narrative. This short film is in no way conclusive; it is a departure point for further examination.


* One of the working titles. 'Home in the land of the homeless' is a line from Paul Simon's Hurricane Eye.
