I am super excited to be travelling to Trinidad & Tobago soon to make a short film loosely based on a trip my mother took right before she was married. The film takes place in the late 1960s, a time when contact with the “old country” was limited and Indian Trinidadians were only starting to connect with the wider diaspora. Part of my process will be to interview Indo-Caribbeans about that time and hear what their impressions of India were before mass media made it so easy to see and connect with the country of their ancestors. I’d love to hear your stories about that period and what you imagined Mother India to be like. Please send me an email to get in touch. I am very fortunate to have received support from the Ontario Arts Council and the Toronto Arts Council to embark on this adventure and collect and then tell these stories that are so rarely seen on our screens.
