Meet Ian Harnarine

A few days ago I posted an article on my blog about a short film set in Trinidad called Doubles with Slight Pepper. Thanks to the power of social networking, I received a tweet from Ian Harnarine, the man responsible for the short film. Needless to say I was very excited and we met for coffee yesterday.

We chatted about the birth of the film and the prestigious awards it won in Toronto. 
Because of this, his film has hit the global circuit. And with its return to Trinidad and Tobago for the film festival, he's excited for the people of the islands to get a taste of Doubles with Slight Pepper. :) 

Ian hopes to turn this into a feature film and tell his wonderful story about a family's journey around food. Here is a link on iTunes where you can purchase it and support Ian's dream and once more put Trinidad and Tobago on the map.
If you live in NYC, the film will open at the IFC Center on Sept 19th:

In the meantime, lets share this with Trin-bagonians across the continent and keep our flag flying high!
