Breathless in Trinidad and Tobago

by Alexandra May - 0 Comment(s)

Come check out a free film! Breathless in Trinidad & Tobago is a documentary film that demonstrates how youth can connect with their community and their culture.

Trinidad & Tobago is a beautiful twin island located in the Caribbean Sea. It has a total population of 1.3 million people. In the year 2008 over 500 murders took place in the country. The community of Gonzales is at the epicenter of the country’s many social and economic problems.

In 2008, Vincent T. Joachim and Jeff Cruz traveled to Gonzales, Trinidad and set up a free photography program with over 20 marginalized youth. The workshop documented the Carnival, the youth, their community and culture through hope and empowerment. The goal was to change the youth perspective, not just with a camera, but also in their everyday life. The documentary features the videography and photography of the youth.

Twilight - the movie

The time has finally come! Twilight, the movie based on your favourite Stephanie Meyer's series is opening in theatres at midnight on November 21st. Do you have your tickets?

We'd love to hear your thoughts on the movie. How did it compare to the book? Did it live up to the hype? Was Robert Pattinson beautiful and hunky enough to play Edward?
