As we get ready to finally shoot the feature film version of Doubles With Slight Pepper this fall, come to the Brooklyn Museum for a rare chance to see the film on the big screen! It will be screening along PAN! Our Musical Journey, a film that traces the history of steel pan music. Come out and support Caribbean stories!

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!
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. The paper is titled and will be published soon : Trinidadian English Creole, Hybrid Identities and Tasty Food: Audiovisual Translation and Multimodal Analysis of “Doubles with Slight Pepper”
This is a massive honor!
Here’s a few more screenings on PBS in a few more markets!

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.
After a successful festival run (which still continues!), the film is now available to stream on Vimeo! Thanks to Short of the Week we’ve had over 10,000 views in less than 24 hours. I could never imagine that. Check it out here:
