Coronet Inside Out: Karen Martinez
(This is a past event and is no longer running)
After Mas is the second of two films about carnival culture we are sharing on Coronet Inside Out to mark The Notting Hill Carnival, which this year has been cancelled for the first time in its history.
Co-produced by the Coronet, After Mas is a short film from Trinidadian/UK filmmaker Karen Martinez. It tells the story of a love that flourishes under the cover of darkness during the festival of J’ouvert on the streets of Port-of-Spain. Shot in Trinidad during Carnival itself, we experience the charge of this bacchanalian drama before following the characters return to their separate lives. In the cold light of day, can these young lovers from very different backgrounds stay true to their desires?
