Coolie Pink and Green | 23mins
Director: Patricia Mohammed | Producer: Patricia Mohammed
Focus Years: 2009 | Country: Trinidad and Tobago
A young girl of Indo-Caribbean descent in Trinidad, a small island in the West Indies, is torn between the ancient culture of her ancestors from India and the multicultural world of the modern society in which she has grown up. Told in a mix of poetry and prose against the haunting sounds of Indian classical and chutney music, "Coolie Pink and Green" is the universal tale of the children of migrants who must carve out their own identity in the place they call home.
