Temple in the Sea Animated Movie Premieres Today

The world premiere of the T&T animated short Temple in the Sea takes place at the T&T Film Festival today.

The 15-minute film tells the story of Indian indentured labourer Siewdass Sadhu, who built the Temple in the Sea at Waterloo, Carapichaima. The story is told through the eyes of a young girl coming to terms with her heritage and identity.

“The look of the work draws on the opulence of Indian architecture and the lushness of Trinidad’s landscape,” said a description of the film on its Facebook page. “The scenes are sharpened by the dramatic choices that allow the audience to see how an Indian peasant during the time of indentureship and a contemporary girl of East Indian heritage might explore parallel paths and find similar answers. The story draws on Hindu mythology to provide some of the explanations and answers the young girl is seeking.”
