Riposte Pictures is developing a feature film — “SCATTERED”. It’s a comedy-drama road movie set in the UK and Trinidad that sees a British woman, Alexa Hastings, travel to Trinidad to scatter the ashes of the Caribbean grandmother she barely knew. There, her free-spirited cousin, Jade, takes her on a wild journey to a remote fishing village where they uncover secrets from her family’s past. Think a female Sideways set in Trinidad!
Karen Martinez will direct and is collaborating with Global Voices supremo Georgia Popplewell on the screenplay. London-based Stella Nwimo is attached as a producer with Port-of-Spain-based Lesley-Anne McFarlane as co-producer. Cast is currently being sought.
The project won the BEST PROJECT AWARD at the Caribbean Film Mart at the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival 2016 in October. It has also been short-listed for the Sundance Screenwriter’s Lab 2017.
