Moko Jumbie
Vashti Anderson, Trinidad & Tobago, 2017, 95 min.

Amidst the ruins of a coconut plantation in rural Trinidad, a displaced girl seeking her roots is drawn to a young fisherman who shares her desire to look beyond. Their taboo attraction grows amidst family disapproval, political turmoil and mysterious hauntings from ancestral spirits.
