The Pursuit of Truth @ 125

From humble beginnings in 1852 with a nun and three young girls from the Belmont Orphanage began a 125 year legacy for the Catholic Church. This documentary looks at the highs and lows of the Catholic Church in Trinidad and Tobago through the writings and stories of its many writers – the 1937 Labour riots, the 1970 Black Power Movement, the 1990 attempted coup; the times we failed history and the times we made history. It is in the pursuit of truth for 125 years that the legacy of a faith and a people are told.
