About

Two film screenings featuring feature-length films examining cultural influences and social implications of multiple aspects of Caribbean life, home and abroad. The two films featured are Pressure (a 1975 film directed by Horace Ové) and A State of Madness, a 2020 film directed by Leticia Tonos. 

About Pressure

Horace Ové’s fiction film debut marks a watershed in the history of British cinema: the nation’s first feature to be written and directed by a Black filmmaker and the first to focus on the perspective of Black characters. Ové and novelist Sam Selvon’s gritty script centres on teenage Tony (Herbert Norville), caught between his Trinidadian parents’ (Lucita Lijertwood and Frank Singuineau) desire to attain middle-class respectability in London and his older brother Colin’s (Oscar James) urging to join the Black Power movement.

About A State of Madness

A film noir evocative Caribbean drama set in 1953 in the Dominican Republic during the cruel dictatorship of Leonidas Trujillo. 

State of Madness is a 2020 Dominican drama film directed by Leticia Tonos. It was selected as the Dominican entry for the Best International Feature Film at the 93rd Academy Awards.
