Riddim

‘Riddim’ paints a cross portrait of three young Guyanese urban dancers. For them, dance is a vector of integration and social recognition. They symbolise the power of appropriation of an entire generation, the emergence of an identity of its own.

You Can Always Come Home

‘You Can Always Come Home’ is a short film that explores the domestic realm through the eyes of young children. It highlights themes such as celebration, ritual, family, and love through Black spatial occupation of the kitchen and front porch. Tangent to the film is a poem written by artists Reginald O’Neal and Arsimmer McCoy that furthers the investigation and liberation of Blackness in the architected environment.

The Moon Child

Ara, a young, bedridden girl, is trapped in her room. The nights are easier for her as the moon gives her comfort and revives her. One night a lunar visitor helps her transcend her physical bonds and find the answers she so desperately needs.

Plan LMNOP

All is fine and dandy on Jo and Rashaad’s first day living together – until a condom breaks.

Le Corps de la Ville en Martinique (The Body of the City in Martinique)

A danced documentary stroll within the natural landscapes and architectural heritage of the Martinique. ‘Le corps de la ville en Martinique’ seeks to elucidate Martinique’s profound, rich and complex identity, through the universal dialogue between image and moving bodies in space.

Boy Blue

1985 Bermondsey. Seated in his Austin Allegro, cassette tape vendor Boy Blue waits to receive the in-demand recording of the Saxon versus Coxone sound system clash which took place the night before at the legendary People’s club venue. His contact Fredrick has promised to deliver the hottest tape of the year.

Perspektiva (Perspective)

Unbeknownst to him, a family man’s job is in danger due to his poor performance at work. Will the help of his best friend make the situation better?

Bougie Banton

Jamaicans may be highly favoured but that doesn’t always make life easy. Web Series ‘Highly Favored’ follows Winter, a Jamaican creative navigating the highs and lows of life as an artist in Los Angeles. In ‘Bougie Banton’, a job interview takes an unexpected turn when Winter’s potential employer turns out to be obsessed with Jamaica.

Camopi One

‘Camopi One’ is an island documentary at the crossroads of borders. In Camopi, a village opposite Brazil in French Guiana which is only accessible by the Oyapock River, the low, thick and piercing sounds of tule clarinets – the main musical instruments of the Waypi Amerindians and the foundation of their culture – resonate. Music and image are weaved in a multi-voiced narrative, where generations and civilizations confront each other.

Da Boca da Noite à Barra do Dia (Dusk Till Dawn)

In Pernambuco’s Zona da Mata, dreams and reality blend. Among the sugarcane fields, the colour, the dance, the theatre, and the music reveal a not-so-distant past, which raise questions about the present, and shine a light on the future challenges of a game that begins at night and ends at daybreak.
