The An(other) Antilles event is a one night installation that weds documentary film and visual art. The evening will be the first and official screening of the An(other) Antilles documentary. The documentary is a sojourn into the experiences of Black Caribbean peoples that immigrated to Montreal in the 1960’s. Central to their stories, are their experiences of race, their participation in the small but formidable Black Power movement, and the affects of Sir George Williams Affair on their lives and perceptions of Canada as Black Caribbean peoples.
The documentary will be presented along with an art installation featuring various Toronto and Montreal based visual artists that have used their medium to interpret the events of the Sir George Williams Affair and the experiences of Black Caribbean peoples that arrived in Montreal during the 1960’s.
