Ranging from overt political commentary to social and personal interrogations and interventions, eight experimental films will screen at the trinidad + tobago film festival (ttff) – to be held from 19 – 26 September.
The programme of experimental films is the result of an open call for submissions for work on the theme ‘Bearings’ which invited multi-disciplinary artists to submit explorations and presentations on identity, globalisation, placement/displacement, migration, contemporary politics and belonging.

During my residency at Alice Yard I worked with artist Luis Vasquez La Roche on a series of video, sound and printmaking projects exploring transnational encounter, language, walking and memory. Our video, Incertidumbre y Fracaso / Uncertainty and Failure, was selected for to the New Media Showcase at the Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival to be screened on Friday the 22nd and Monday the 25th of September.
