HERE IS THE IMAGINATION OF THE BLACK RADICAL
Junkanoo, a carnival-like celebration in the Bahamas, is a culture with innovative costume designs. Aesthetic and political intertwine as we follow the Shell Saxon Superstars in the year-long production of costumes. Here is Black radical imagination, a resistance, a uniquely Bahamian identity. So who is archiving Junkanoo for future generations?
“Rhea Storr's euphoric short is built on a communal energy reverberating between performers and punctuated by insightful testimonies. The potency of Junkanoo is enough to feed the tired and unmotivated, as it permeates the screen and invites us in to revel in these expressions of joy, artistry and limitless potentialities.
