CTFF 2017: Cutlass

Short Films:


Twelve-year-old Trench Town tomboy Likkle shows her urban survival skills as she careens around the ghetto, running, jumping, hiding from the dreadlocks in pursuit.


A short film that invites us to examine our responses to dissenting voices, as well as our relationship with technology.

Feature Presentation:


Joanna reluctantly takes a day off from caring for her sick father to hang out with her friends on the remote beaches of Trinidad. But what was expected to be a much-needed break, suddenly becomes a terrifying turn of events when the group is robbed at gunpoint and Joanna goes missing.

She finds herself isolated in a world of natural beauty as she musters the courage to emotionally battle the unsettled mind of her kidnapper. Inspired by a true story, the film slices a path through the vines of intellect and delusion to explore the depths of mental strength, unforeseen sympathy, internal freedom and the human spirit.
