The Radical Innocence of Jackie Hinkson

Jackie Hinkson is one of the Caribbean’s greatest living artists, and has been painting the landscape of his native Trinidad and Tobago for over five decades. The film asks: “Why look at a work of art?” and an answer is proposed by looking  at Hinkson’s artistic themes and his media, with commentary from the artist himself.
