Local film, Green Days by the River opens T&T Film Festival

Green Days by the River, a film adapta­tion of Michael Antho­ny’s classic 1967 novel of the same name, will open this year’s T&T Film Festival (ttff/17), with a red carpet gala and screening to be held at the National Academy for the Performing Arts (NAPA), on September 19.

The first local film by a TT director and producer to open the festival, director Michael Mooleedhar’s film is set in the idyllic country­side of 1950s Mayaro and re-tells the story of 15 year old Shell. Newly arrived in the village, he quickly gets caught between his longing to be a man, and his child-like innocence in the face of adult cunning.

With adolescent hor­mones raging, amidst the beauty of the local girls and the Mayaro landscape, the quiet storm that’s brewing may prove more than Shell can handle and life as he once knew it may never be the same again.
