Generations of Caribbean readers know Shell’s and Rosalie’s story well. Shell and Rosalie, the main characters in Michael Anthony’s 1967 novel Green Days by the River, will now share their story with upcoming generations, through film.
The beloved story will open this year’s Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival (ttff). It is one of four TT features and over 34 local shorts that will premiere at the festival this year. A red carpet gala and screening of the adaptation, which carries the same name, will be held on September 19 at the National Academy for the Performing Arts (NAPA).
It is also the first local film by a TT director and producer to open the annual film festival.
