Sweet T&T 60th Anniversary
September 8, 2022
Sweet T&T celebrates the 60th anniversary of Trinidad and Tobago’s Independence with five short films from T&T and our feature LAVWAY: Our Story, an ode to traditions in Trinidad Carnival and history told in a spectacular visual and dramatic vision.
Directed by Ryan Gibbons
From the visionary Creative Director of The Lost Tribe in Trinidad and Tobago, LAVWAY is an experimental film based on traditions of Trinidad’s unique Carnival. The film harnesses the energy of the mas and is a rousing ode to the origins and rituals of the festival; awash in mysticism, vibrant colour and pulsating soca music.
