Field Notes

2014, 17:34  16mm

Field Notes is an experimental portrait of the ghosts embedded in the culture of the island nation of Trinidad and Tobago. The film is structured as a visual and aural field guide to the ghosts spirits and jumbies througout the island: from personal tales about shapeshifters and bloodsuckers, to the ghosts of Trinidads past. The film focuses on the places where the natural and supernatural collide.
