Dreams in Transit UK film premiere and discussion

Tue 6 September, 7-9pm

Join us for the UK premiere of award-winning director Karen Martinez’s Dreams in Transit, a poetic documentary reflecting on the theme of identity and contemporary migration.

First screened to much acclaim at the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival in September 2015, the film is narrated by a Trinidadian based in London, who returns to the Caribbean to explore what ‘home’ and ‘belonging’ really mean for both migrants and non-migrants, particularly in the age of cheap air travel and Skype.

The film uses a kaleidoscopic approach that mixes interviews, actuality, a meditative narration delivered by the actor Martina Laird and an evocative acoustic score by acclaimed London-based Trinidadian composer Dominique Le Gendre.

After the screening independent film and moving image curator Karen Alexander will be in discussion with director Karen Martinez.
