This academic music video explores “wining” as a dance language with a history and identity born out of the Caribbean experience. In particular, it looks at the body in motion as well as elements of Trinidadian society that are represented in the way people dance and the various ethnic influences on the dance itself.

US-born director, Emilie Upczak, has worked primarily in the ethnographic and experimental short film form. She is currently working on a narrative film that blends film noir with blaxploitation, which will be shot in Trinidad and Tobago next year. Upczak makes her home in Port of Spain.
