Better Mus’ Come is currently on a successful festival tour and most recently won the Audience Award at the highly regarded Bermuda International Film Festival. More recently, it has enjoyed sold out screenings in Toronto, New York, and Washington DC.

The event takes place April 15th, as the Closing Night ceremony at CaribbeaTales 2012 Barbados Festival at the Sheraton Mall.

“We are delighted to work with Olympus Theatres and owner John Morgan to bring great Caribbean films to Barbadian audiences” says Frances-Anne Solomon, founder and CEO of CaribbeanTales.

Set within the politically turbulent turf wars of 1970’s Kingston, Jamaica, Saulter’s film tells the story of the Green Bay Massacre, a landmark in Jamaica’s political history, and a young gang leader who must choose between fighting for his tribe and making a better life for his five-year old son. Hailed as “heralding a new era in Jamaican filmmaking“,

Solomon says Better Mus’ Come will appeal to audiences in Barbados and across the Caribbean, because it is “a beautifully rendered modern story” that young and old can appreciate for its high production values and compelling story line.

The event will start at 6pm with a reception followed by an Awards presentation and the screening of the multi-award winning short film Doubles with Slight Pepper by Canadian-Trinidadian filmmaker Ian Harnarine, followed by Better Mus Come, and a talk back with actors from the film.
