ART CONNECT

2014 | Documentary Feature | Trinidad & Tobago | 74’

Art Connect is a feature length documentary that reveals how art and creativity impacted the lives of "at risk" children, aged twelve to sixteen, living in the disenfranchised and volatile area of Laventille, Trinidad.

The story is told by the children, who had access to different forms of art to express themselves, including cameras so they could film their own stories about their lives. Through their talking, painting, singing, filming and dancing, we are allowed into their world.
