CaFA Cinema Nights
CaFA Cinema Nights in a screening series in Brooklyn, NY, designed to share Caribbean films with the community. We love anyone who loves and is interested in Caribbean culture.

For this, the Third Edition of the 2017 Series, we will be honoring Derek Walcott with a screening of the documentary on his life.

POETRY IS AN ISLAND: DEREK WALCOTT
by Ida Does
St. Lucia | 2013
1hr 10 mins

As a poet, playwright, painter and even filmmaker, Derek Walcott has been hymning the Caribbean for over 60 years. This documentary presents an intimate portrait of him, set in his beloved native island St. Lucia. The place he always longs for, when he is taken to far away places by his universally acclaimed work.

The film explores the poetry of Derek Walcott, the landscapes and people that inspire it. It observes Walcott in places essential to his work and life, and gathers the thoughts of some of his closest childhood friends. Most importantly, this documentary is a celebration of the greatest gift Walcott has given the world: his poetry.

Preceded by:
THE COMING OF ORG
by Davina Lee
St. Lucia | 2012

The Coming of Org is based on short stories written by John Robert Lee, a Saint Lucian writer. The story takes a look at three different people who come face to face with their inner demons in three separate ways. It highlights Saint Lucian folk stories and music, with most of the dialogue in French Creole.
