This year's Flatbush Film Festival showcases classic and contemporary West Indian cinema. For three consecutive weeks, caribBeing presents a vast array of films from Trinidad, Jamaica, Haiti, Cuba, Gaudeloupe, Mauritania, the UK, and US. Fulfilling its mission of community-building through Carribean art and cinema, caribBeing provides a platform for filmmakers and aficionados from both Caribbean and non-Caribbean descent. Courtesy of several Caribbean and Flatbush community establishments, food and refreshments are provided at the screenings. At the the first film showing of the cult classic Pressure, director Horace Ove participates in a post-screening Q&A session; don't miss it if you can help it!
