Not immediately related to Doubles With Slight Pepper, but I recently got to work with Sesame Street on a new music video for their show. It’s a wonderful little song that’s about children appreciating their skin and all of the beautiful shades that it can be. It’s a great message and I’m really proud to have directed it.

Enjoy it and please pass it along to your friends and any children that you might know!


A Dissertation About the Film! 0

When we made this film, no one had any clue just how far it would reach and to whom. We’ve been very fortunate with audiences, festivals, writers and journalists. And now academics! Here’s the first dissertation (yes, dissertation!) based on the film by Francesco Nacchia, in Naples.

It’s an interesting read (all 143 pages!), particularly as the author does a visual analysis of the film and attempts to translate all of the dialogue into Italian. Read it here: Trinidadian English Creole, Hybrid Identities and Tasty Food: Audiovisual Translation and Multimodal Analysis of “Doubles with Slight Pepper”

This is a massive honor!

Coolitude! 0




We are very proud to screen at the Queens Museum as part of  an  event called Coolitude, which is an evening of Indo- Caribbean  Art & Literature.


 We’re in fine company with some other terrific artists who  inspire the work. The event is taking place on March  29th from 4-6pm.


 As far as I know, this is an unprecedented  examination of  Indo-Caribbean art in such an esteemed  venue.  You can find  more details over in the Screenings page.

King of the County of Kings 0

We won the award for BEST SHORT FILM at the Bushwick Film Festival in Brooklyn! It’s amazing to have the film reach so many people and it’s all thanks to Festivals.


Congratulations to the cast and crew of the film!

Great News for the Feature 0

The feature adaptation of the short film was recently selected by IFP to take part in their Emerging Storytellers program! If you’re unfamiliar with the program here’s what they say:


The premier talent pool for new voices on the independent scene, RBC’s Emerging Storytellers presents 25 U.S. narrative features in early-stage development with little previous marketplace exposure. Writer/directors have a variety of experience, having previously established themselves through the festival circuit, as well as web, advertising and new media platforms.


As you can see – it’s a pretty big deal! I’ve loved the films that they’ve supported over the years and the other selections look pretty amazing. Needless to say, it’s going to be a really busy time in September. But, we’re looking forward to it.


You can read more about the program and the projects here!

Screening in Toronto for Caribana Week 0

We’ll be screening in Toronto on July 31st, 2013 at the Revue Cinema!


What makes this special is that we’ll be playing along with Janine Fung’s documentary La Gaita, which is about the Lara Brothers based out of Trinidad. If you don’t know who the Lara Brothers are, they are one of the few traditional Parang groups around. What’s Parang? It’s the Spanish language music that’s played in Trinidad around Christmas. Their music is featured in the trailer for Doubles With Slight Pepper and in key scenes in the film. It’s going to be a great night of music and film! Hope to see you there!
