Director Emilie Upczak – 2017 Trinidad and Tobago 77 min West Coast Premiere – Drama/Narrative 

 

This quietly gripping drama puts a fresh spin on the subject of human trafficking by introducing us to a young Chinese woman smuggled into Trinidad and Tobago. After the death of her father, Zhenzhen hires a smuggler to take her to the Caribbean island where her brother, Wei, works in construction. Wei gets her a job at a restaurant, but when the smuggler demands more cash, the delicate beauty is forced into a compromising position. Help comes unexpectedly from Evelyn, who runs an art gallery in the neighborhood—but the contrast between the dark rooms above the restaurant and the blindingly white gallery calls everyone’s innocence into question. – Chris Metzler
