Opening Night red carpet gala and film—Green Days by the River
September 19, NAPA, Port-of-Spain, 6 pm, by invitation or ticket only.
Michael Mooleedhar’s film follows Michael Anthony’s classic novel of adolescence, immersing the viewer in the sights and sounds of rural Trinidad 50 years ago. Many locals will have read it in their youth, and the film does a good job of reviving nostalgic memories of both the book and a way of life long since past.
