Caribana 1987

Robert Cowan

1987, 45:00 minutes, colour


"I had never seen the Caribana parade before, what was shot was done without any pre-knowledge or pre-planning. It trys to capture the colour, texture, music and excitement of the event as it happened in an impressionistic style. The people dance, sing and flow with the music. The camera moves the same way. The costumes are lavish and extraordinary. The mood is one of joy and exuberance throughout." -R.C.
