Film: Pan! Our Music Odyssey (Jérôme Guiot, Trinidad and Tobago, 2014, 80min, English, French, Japanese with Eng ST)

The story of the national instrument of Trinidad and Tobago, the only new acoustic musical instrument invented in the twentieth century. The film dramatises the mythical invention of pan in the 1940s, and then surges forward to tell the stories of people from all over the world—T+T, France, Japan, the USA—who have staked everything on their love of the instrument, and whose passion and daring draw them each year to the "world championships” of steelband.

Co-presented with caribBEING and Indo Caribbean Alliance
