Guests experienced ‘winter’ in April on Thursday at a special showing of A Winter Tale.
The movie is the creation of Frances-Anne Solomon, an English-born filmmaker of Trinidadian heritage. The movie stars Jamaican film, TV and radio icon Leonie Forbes; Jamaican-born actor Peter Williams, and up-and-coming Afro-Canadian actor Michael Miller. Those stars, and a few others from the film team, were joined by guests from the local film community at the Palace Cineplex in Sovereign Centre for a special showing.
Guests out included Trinidad and Tobago High Commissioner Yvonne Gittens-Joseph, Lennie Little-White, Alma Mock Yen, Grace McGhie, Franklyn ‘Chappy’ St. Juste and sons Brian and François, Carol Hart, Alwyn Scott and wife Donna Duncan-Scott, Morin Seymour, Nardia McKenzie, Judith Alberga, Sheila Graham, Angela Patterson and others.
