TONIGHT, the curtain will come down of the trinidad+- tobago film festival’s (ttff) Community Cinergy open air cinema series, sponsored by bpTT, with the screening of Miles Ahead at the San Fernando Hill, at 7 pm. The film is expected to bring to life the legendary jazz musician Miles Davis (1926 – 1991), who was at the forefront of a number of major stylistic developments in jazz over his five-decade career.
This series started with the airing of All Oceans Blue on April 1, a documentary on famed TT sailor Harold La Borde, that was held at the TT Sailing Association, Chaguaramas, and a week later, at Lange Park Recreation Grounds in Chaguanas, the airing of The World of Goopi and Bagha, an animation film in Hindi.
Johanna Thomas, public relations and marketing co-ordinator at the ttff said the ttff celebrates films from and about the Caribbean and its diaspora, as well as from world cinema, through an annual festival and year-round screenings.
She said the ttff seeks to facilitate the growth of Caribbean cinema by offering a wide-ranging industry programme and networking opportunities.
