New Caribbean Cinema Series Presents 'Ring Di Alarm' - 7 Stories, 6 Directors, 1 Island (Jamaica)

Shadow and Act By Courtney | Shadow and Act September 5, 2012 at 7:38PM

As described by the filmmakers behind it... The New Caribbean Cinema Series is a fresh, pioneering approach to film-making in the Caribbean. A mixture of ‘First World’ technical skill and business savvy, flavored with a distinctly Caribbean world-view, the New Caribbean Cinema Series proposes to present the world with a showcase of creative artistry from the region’s up and coming filmmakers. The series is a Caribbean co-production, jointly produced by Storm Saulter from Jamaica and the St Lucian born Michelle Serieux. The productions rely heavily on the creative and technical support of Joel Burke and Nile Saulter and are sustained by the commitment and effort of their production crew, who work at greatly reduced costs so that they can create a body of work that represents their capabilities. Tired of waiting on funding that never comes, New Caribbean Cinema exists to challenge old models and to prove that in the region, innovation and ingenuity are key to artistic expression.

As described by the filmmakers behind it... The New Caribbean Cinema Series is a fresh, pioneering approach to film-making in the Caribbean. A mixture of ‘First World’ technical skill and business savvy, flavored with a distinctly Caribbean world-view, the New Caribbean Cinema Series proposes to present the world with a showcase of creative artistry from the region’s up and coming filmmakers. The series is a Caribbean co-production, jointly produced by Storm Saulter from Jamaica and the St Lucian born Michelle Serieux. The productions rely heavily on the creative and technical support of Joel Burke and Nile Saulter and are sustained by the commitment and effort of their production crew, who work at greatly reduced costs so that they can create a body of work that represents their capabilities. Tired of waiting on funding that never comes, New Caribbean Cinema exists to challenge old models and to prove that in the region, innovation and ingenuity are key to artistic expression.

One of the films to come out of that series will make its Caribbean premiere at the Trinidad+Tobago Film Festival later this month.

Titled Ring di Alarm!, the feature film comprises of a compilation of eight short films by different directors about life in modern-day Jamaica, made by the New Caribbean Cinema filmmakers’ collective. The filmmakers include Desmond Young, Joel Burke, Kyle Chin, Michael "Ras Tingle" Tingling, Michelle Serieux, Nile Saulter, and Storm Saulter.

As the festival write-up describes it... Moving from the majestic Blue Mountains, to the gritty ghetto, to the stunning north coast, and spinning stories funny, suspenseful, thrilling and poignant, this is a cinematic mosaic as diverse and complex as the island that inspired it.

You'll recognize some of the faces in the film, including Roger Guenveur Smith.

It made its world premiere just a few days ago, September 2, 2012, at the British Film Institute, in London.

Comparisons to films like City Of God are likely, based on the trailer below:
