RIPOSTE PICTURES, based in Kentish Town, London, was founded by Karen Martinez and Andy Lambert.
We make documentaries, drama and comedy. We are keen on all things Caribbean – but there's plenty of other stuff we are into too. We’re currently developing our first movie, SCATTERED.
KAREN MARTINEZ, originally from Trinidad, has produced and directed several documentaries for Channel 4, The Arts Council, The Trinidad Film Company and others. She made her first drama After Mas set in Port-of-Spain which won Best Short Award at the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival 2013. More recently she made Dreams in Transit a lyrical documentary-essay about identity, migration and 'home' which won the Caribbean Spirit Award at The Caribbean Tales Festival in Toronto. She is currently in development with Scattered, her first feature-length film.
