CaribbeanTales Youth Film Festival and TIFF join forces to celebrate Canadian Black History Month with a fundraising Gala recognizing 50 years of independence for Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago, and two screenings of Storm Saulter’s award-winning film BETTER MUS COME.
About the film
Three years in the making, Better Mus’ Come brilliantly captures the deep rooted conflict at the heart of Jamaican politics as seen in violent images in news reports and recent explosive political headlines all over the world in the international manhunt for alleged Jamaican “Don”, Christopher “Dudus” Coke, leaving 76 civilians dead and a government-mandated State of Emergency in its aftermath. In a timely and provocative production, Better Mus’ Come traces the origins of the use of street gangs by political parties in their violent struggle to win the national election.
