Pappy: Film from Dominica at TTFF 2015


I am very excited to announce that a short film about one of Dominica’s most colorful characters–Pappy–has been selected for screening at the Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival this year. I am doubly pleased as the film is the work of a promising young director. Congrats, Sandra!

Director: Sandra Vivas
2015 Dominica
Documentary short/10 minutes

For the last 30 years Pappy has been running unsuccessfully for Prime Minister of Dominica, each time gaining fewer votes than before. In 2014 he runs again, this time on a platform to legalise marijuana.
