The Carnival Makers

“The Carnival Makers” tells the origin story of Trinidadian carnival, and the strong link which UK’s own Notting Hill Carnival has to Trinidad & Tobago’s national carnival.

Here are some stills from the most recent interviews with Alex.D.Great, the wonderful calypsonian who brightened up our day with his songs and guitar playing, and Leroy Logan MBE, (police superintendent, founder member of the Black Police Association), who gave a fascinating and insightful interview about his experience of policing carnival.

“The Carnival Makers” is produced & directed by Stella Ramsden, we collaborated on a previous short called “Nature Trail“.
Below is a teaser of one of the songs that Alex.D.Great sang during the interview.
