A scene from The Price of Memory.
Anew documentary from
Jamaica on the subject of
reparations for African
chattel slavery will screen at the 2014
T&T Film Festival (TTFF), which
runs from September 16-30.
The Price of Memory, directed by
Karen Marks Mafundikwa, takes as
its starting point the visit by Queen
Elizabeth to Jamaica in 2002. On that
trip, she was petitioned by a small
group of Rastafari for slavery repa-
The Price of Memory film traces
the Rastafarian petition and a repa-
rations lawsuit against the Queen over
a decade into both the British and
Jamaican parliaments, while
interweaving stories of earlier Rastas
who pursued reparations in the 1960s.
A release from the TTFF said the
film will have two screenings, Sep-
tember 21 at 12.30 pm and September
28 at 3.30 pm. Both screenings take
place at The Little Carib Theatre.
Immediately following the first
screening on September 21, a panel
discussion on reparations will be held.
The panelists are: Aiyegoro Ome,
Chairman, T&T National Committee
on Reparations; Bridget Brereton, Pro-
fessor Emerita of History at UWI, St
Augustine; Kevin Baldeosingh, news-
paper columnist and public intellec-
tual; and Clyde Noel, a member of
All Mansions of Rastafari.
At the screening on September 28,
director Karen Marks Mafundikwa
will be in attendance, and will engage
in a Q&A session with the audience
after the film.
Tickets for the either screening of
the film cost $30 ($15 for students
with student ID) and may be pur-
chased at the Little Carib in advance
or at the time of the screenings.
As the countdown to the Festival
takes place, the level of buzz and ener-
gy around the Festival goes up.
In addition to pre-Festival limes at
Drink Lounge and Bistro, the TTFF
has launched t-shirts to commemo-
rate the Festival.
Designers Nick Salloum and Elena
Molchanova of SAYSM have presented
their own take on the TTFF/14 s
tagline Looking good.
SAYSM was launched as a creative
brand in December 2013. Their
tongue-in-cheek designs, bearing
positive affirmations, helped Salloum
and Molchanova quickly make a name
for their new collaborative venture in
Coming from different back-
grounds---Salloum as an artist, engi-
neer and web developer; Molchanova
as an advertising art director and fic-
tion writer---the duo work together
to turn words into mixed-media art
and design concepts.
In the case of the TTFF/14 t-shirt
design, the pair translated this year s
tagline into an original SAYSM con-
cept, while remaining loyal to the
TTFF brand aesthetics.
Although intended for open inter-
pretation, the geometric lens heart
was initially thought of as a visual
representation of what happens inside
a camera after the shutter clicks, a
reflection of the fact that there is a
hidden universe behind every frame
of every story.
The TTFF/14 special-edition T-
shirt will be available for sale during
the Festival---at a cost of $100.00
each---at MovieTowne Port-of-Spain,
the Little Carib Theatre, and the TTFF
Secretariat at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.
