Contemporary Caribbean Film

Inspired by the reflections of scholars Stuart Hall and Paul Gilroy on the roots and routes of black identity, this series is a glimpse into the vibrancy of contemporary Caribbean filmmaking. These films deal with the legacies of migration to and from the region, as well as the tug of close familial and distant ancestral links. Representing the Caribbean’s linguistic and cultural diversity, Roots/Routes especially emphasizes woman-directed and women-centered films as integral to a truly dynamic Caribbean cinema culture. Sponsored by the Black Film Center/Archive, Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, Minority Languages and Cultures Program, and IU Cinema. Special thanks to Nzingha Kendall. Screenings are free, but ticketed.
