Q&A with Ernest Dickerson and producer Lisa Cortes.
Dickerson, the cinematographer of several of Spike Lee’s most crucial works and an accomplished director in his own right, travelled to the Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao to craft this vibrant, atmospheric adaptation of an acclaimed novel by Kurasoleño writer Frank Martinus Arion. Part love triangle, part cultural celebration, the film’s protagonist Ostrik returns to his native country from the Netherlands, where he must confront the memory of a long-ago incident whose repercussions haunt the present day. Featuring phenomenal performances by Luke Cage star Mustapha Shakir and the always excellent Louis Gossett, Jr.
Screening as a part of Double Exposure.
