CTFF 2017: Menelik Shabazz Tribute

CaribbeanTales is proud to honour and recognize Menelik Shabazz for his contribution to Film And Television.

Short Films:


A young black woman in England becomes increasingly frustrated with her life with her lazy, demanding boyfriend, and with the help of friends seeks something better.


Menelik Shabazz is a trailblazer in Barbadian film, laying the groundwork and the vision of how the industry can grow. This featurette takes a look at the life and the work of the man and his Legacy and what that means for the entire region.


This latest documentary of British-Barbadian film legend Menelik Shabaaz discusses what it means to look for love in contemporary society and the difficulties black men and women face in their search. Featuring spoken word artists, therapists, comedians, journalists and activists, alongside real and raw discussions among Black people (young and old), Looking for Love tries to dig to the heart of why love appears to be.

Feature Presentation:


Race and passion clash in tropical Barbados when a wealthy white man kills his wife’s black lover and expects to get away with it. This sets in motion a day of reckoning with the dead man’s wife who has evidence to destroy his empire of lies.
