One Week Left to View Over 90 Tales of Terror and Triumph From Around the World

The festival aspect of the third annual Film and Folklore Festival may be over but there's still one week left to enjoy more than 90 films from Trinidad and Tobago and over 30 other countries.

The 2021 film selection is available for viewing on the Digicel PlayGo app until June 14.

The TT selection features a mixture of exciting horror/thriller films and thought-provoking documentaries.

Those in the mood for scares and thrills can check out: The Hike, about a couple lost in the forest and plagued by supernatural forces; The Lagahoo, about the chain-dragging werewolf-like creature of local folklore; and The Bachack Man about a local superhero who acquires his abilities via mystical means.

For TT documentary lovers they can view: I Am Merikin about the history of the "Merikin Maroons"; or Nearest Neighbours about the daily lives of Venezuelan refugees and asylum seekers.

For those interested in international horror/thrillers there is 616 from Mexico, an unnerving stop-motion animation tale about a zombie, Acide from France, a riveting sci-fi thriller about a deadly acid cloud, and Corvus from the UK, a stylish horror about a forest witch.

For international documentary lovers there is Adi Tala from India, a musical journey into the myth and history of the tabla and the mridangam, the country's two major percussion instruments, Dajla: Cinema and Oblivion from Spain, where a film festival breaks up mundane life at a refugee camp in Southern Algeria, or The Pain of Losing Identity from South Africa, an enthralling look into the rituals of a young Zulu woman.

The countries that can access the Digicel PlayGo App are Anguilla, Antigua, Aruba, Barbados, Bermuda, Bonaire, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Curacao, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Montserrat, Panama, St Kitts, St Lucia, St Vincent, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, and Turks and Caicos.
