Sunday Nite Movie Lime, 29th May 2011

Rain

Fancy catching a couple of great movies this Arrival Day weekend? If you’re in Tobago you can do just that, at the Sunday Nite Movie Lime, which we’re hosting along with the Division of Community Development+Culture of the Tobago House of Assembly (THA).

The lime takes place this Sunday, 29 May, 7-9pm at the Buccoo Community Centre, and will comprise two films. The first is a science-fiction short, Pumzi (2009), written and directed by the Kenyan filmmaker Wanuri Kahiu. A visually stunning tale of one woman’s quest to breathe new life into a dying planet Earth, Pumzi was a selection of the ttff/10.

Following Pumzi will be the evening’s feature film, Rain (2008), written and directed by Maria Govan of the Bahamas. The opening night film of the ttff/09, Rain is a powerful drama about the attempts of a teenage girl, Rain, a promising sprinter, to forge a relationship with her mother, after many years of being apart.

Admission to the Sunday Nite Movie Lime is free. The films are recommended for persons 14 years and over. We hope to see you there!
