SHORT FILMS

"Teach A Man" by Carver Bacchus

This short documentary film follows a south Trinidad spear fisherman on a trip out to sea. Jason Jones is a husband, father and commercial scuba diver who has seen his livelihood threatened by climate change and frequent oil spills in the Gulf of Paria. Despite also facing several personal challenges Jason is hopeful that something can be done to save his community from neglect and economic depression.

"Quiet Revolution " by Rhonda Chan Soo and Edward Inglefield

Erle “the Crazy Runner” is an adventure racer and barefoot ultra marathoner, and now a major advocate for Permaculture in T&T. Armed only with an old photocopy of a “permanent agriculture/ culture” manual, Erle set out to regenerate the land. Against a land history of fire damage, herbicide and pesticide use, his permaculture farm, Wa Samaki Ecosystems, is a hub for ecological farming and learning; amidst the dominant culture of conventional agriculture.

The film is timely in that it was completed days before the passing of permaculture founder, Bill Mollison, whose wisdom punctuates the film.

"Way of Giants" by Alois de Leo

In a poetical search for purpose and reason; Way of Giants follows the story of a six year old indigenous girl, Oquirá, as she confronts the cycle of life and the concept of destiny. The film explores the forces in nature and our connection with the earth and its elements.

Yochi is the story of a 9-year-old selectively mute Mayan boy who guards a nest of endangered Yellow-Headed Parrots in Belize’s pine savannah. When his beloved older brother, Itza, returns from the city, Yochi learns that he’s in debt and has turned to poaching – setting the brothers on a collision course.
