“Unfinished Sentences”: Premiere at Bocas Lit Fest  


SAVANT Films and NGC Bocas Lit Fest have announced the Trinidad and Tobago premiere of award-winning filmmaker Mariel Brown’s new film, Unfinished Sentences. There will be a cocktail reception prior to the film screening at the Central Bank Auditorium on April 26, 2018, from 6:30pm.

Description: In the wake of writer and columnist Wayne Brown’s death in 2009, his filmmaker daughter, Mariel, examines his legacy in her time of grief. In Unfinished Sentences, Mariel examines the nature of family, love, loss and art, and in so doing, learns that, through his writing, her father can transcend space and time to connect with her. Unfinished Sentences features interviews with Caribbean writers Mervyn Morris and Rachel Manley as well as close friends and family of Wayne Brown. Different visual approaches to the documentary are realised by directors of photography Sean Edghill and Nadia Huggins with Edghill focusing on reenactments (which were filmed on Super 8 film) and Huggins creating a poetic visual aesthetic.
