“Whoever took his life has to pay and they will pay very soon.”
Those were the words of a man said to be like a grandfather to nine-year-old Cyon Paul during his funeral yesterday.
One of the featured films at the European Film Festival (EFF) today is the English drama Ginger and Rosa.
This Sally Potter-directed film tells the story of best friends growing up in London in the early 60s.
The two teenagers are inseparable, sharing everything together. But as the Cuban missile crisis breaks and Ginger becomes an activist in the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, their friendship is redefined. And when Ginger discovers a terrible secret, their bond threatens to break forever.
The EFF runs until May 27 at MovieTowne, Port-of-Spain, and MovieTowne, Tobago.
Tickets for all screenings are $30 each, with tickets for children and students (in uniform or with student ID) priced at $20.
