Caribbean in Motion: A Film Series

Museum of the African Diaspora

This film series-- a combination of documentaries and fiction narratives--examines the various legacies of a region known for its history of slavery, colonialism and migration but the films also reveal the beauty, fierce resistance, regional interconnections, its internationalism, dexterity of its language(s) and its vibrant music.


This is what SF/Arts curator Sura Wood had to say about Caribbean in Motion: A Film Series :

MoAD’s film series, shown in conjunction with the museum’s current exhibition, “Coffee, Rhum, Sugar & Gold: A Postcolonial Paradox,” is a mix of documentaries and fictional narratives that examine slavery, colonialism, immigration and other troubled legacies of the Caribbean, a region better known for its tropical beauty and musical traditions than the darker chapters of its sometimes brutal history.
