‘Home Again’ movie shot in Trinidad and starring Tatyana Ali premiers in Trinidad on Wed April 3rd 2013

The following is a review of Home Again by BC Pires who notes:

“Home Again, the first feature film of the Canadian husband-and-wife team of writer-director Sudz Sutherland and writer-producer Jennifer Holness, is assured of a place in the history of Trinidad and Tobago cinema even before it opens: the movie, set entirely in Jamaica, bar a handful of flashback scenes, was shot entirely in Trinidad (including said flashback scenes).  The first tip of the hat for a successful Jamaican-Canadian-Trinidadian movie—the filmmakers have told their story—must go, then, to the location spotter (and local supervising producer) Lisa Wickham, who managed to find bits of Beetham Gardens that could pass for Tivoli ones, and to cinematographer Arthur Cooper and film editor Jeff Warren, who camouflaged even, say, the presentable Long Circular Mall well enough to render them as shoddy Old Kingston.

The film itself is also worthy of notice. It began, in the filmmakers’ minds, as a documentary, the idea for which came from the startling statistic, thrown up on the screen at the beginning of the film, that there are over 34,000 “deportees” from North America and Europe who have been “returned” to Jamaica, many of whom left in infancy or very early childhood, and have no real connection to geographical-physical Jamaica beyond the happenstance of birth.  Home Again concentrates on the fates of three deportees, one each from Canada, the US and England.”

Congrats to my God-sister Lisa Wickham!  I am so proud of her!  Well done!  Looking forward to the opening on Wednesday April 3rd 2013.  Seeing Trinidad on the big screen will be awesome!!!
