The second annual Third Horizon Caribbean Film Festival returns to Miami September 28 to October 1 with a curated lineup of the best in film from the Caribbean and its diaspora. In a historical moment when the very notion of cultural diversity is being threatened from so many angles, a full appreciation of the Caribbean as perhaps the most culturally diverse region in the world has never been more important. As the crucible of the modern world, the Caribbean has always been a place where people from the Americas, Africa, Europe and Asia have converged, and if anything, the conversation around diversity that is currently gripping both America and the UK is one that the Caribbean has already been immersed in for centuries. Third Horizon Caribbean Film Festival aims to celebrate and showcase this diversity by highlighting the most adventurous creatives in film, art and music who are emerging from the region and its sprawling diaspora. We hope you join us for a weekend that explores just how the Caribbean, in all its colorful nuance, is at once a signpost of the present, the past and the future of our ever-expanding world.
Festival kicks off its second year at PÃ©rez Art Museum Miami with the Miami premiere of Trinidadian director Vashti Anderson’s “Moko Jumbie” and a party on the patio with DJ duo ELECTRiC PUNANNY! Fresh off its world premiere at LA Film Festival, Moko Jumbie tells the tale of Asha, a young girl who returns to her familyâ€™s home on a rural coconut plantation in Trinidad. Despite racial taboos, her auntâ€™s admonitions, political turmoil and mysterious hauntings from ancestral spirits, Asha embarks on a forbidden relationship with Roger, a young fisherman who shares her desire to look beyond the physical world. The premiere is followed by a party on the patio with ELECTRiC PUNANNY, the Brooklyn-based DJ duo of MeLo-X and Jasmine Solano. #thrdhrzn
