The trinidad Guardian / Agriculture minister Clarence Rambharat demonstrated his ongoing support for the mission of Green Screen, attending both the launch of the annual environmental film festival on November 2 and reception the following evening hosted by Green Screen producers Sustain T&T, and the Canadian High Commission.
Green Screen shows local, regional and international movies and creates a space for conversation and action around environmental and sustainability issues.
The latter event, held under the full moon at #6 Scott St in St Clair, was attended by representatives of several foreign embassies, including Chile and Germany, along with members of the public, who viewed the film Hadwin’s Judgement.
The hard-hitting film follows a logger and environmental activist’s journey into obsession, culminating in what some perceived as an unforgivable crime against the Earth.
The audience was moved by the story, which featured stunning cinematography of remote British Columbia, Canada.
Director Sasha Snow, one of the festival’s visiting filmmakers, participated in a Q&A session after the film, describing the role the movie had played in creating a bridge that allows for communication between affected parties.
