Ernest Dickerson, Lisa Cortes, U.S. and Curaçao, 2018
Dickerson, the cinematographer of several of Spike Lee’s best-loved works and an accomplished director in his own right, travelled to the Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao to craft this atmospheric, vibrant adaptation of an acclaimed novel by Kurasoleño author, Frank Martinus Arion. Part love triangle, part cultural celebration, the film’s protagonist returns to his native country from the Netherlands. There he must confront the memory of a long-ago incident whose repercussions haunt the present day. This film features phenomenal performances by Luke Cage star Mustapha Shakir, and the always excellent Louis Gossett, Jr.
