ABOUT THE FILM
This is the story of how an old African ritual, which found expression in Trinidad’s traditional Carnival masquerade became a dynamic form of social intervention, a fun hobby and created some of our most spectacular mas kings and queens. Through the efforts of Mr. Glen DeSouza, better known as Dragon, the dying moko jumbie stilt dancing practice received a revival as it spread throughout the country and abroad.
