Arts Connect

Positive Laventille youth to be featured in New York

An international documentary screening at the Brooklyn Academy of Music next month highlights the power of art to transform the lives of children. But the director of “Art Connect” had no idea what would result when he brought his camera to Laventille, a region of Trinidad and Tobago with a dangerous reputation.

“What was supposed to be a three-week project with a five-minute video ended up being a year project with a feature documentary,” said director Miquel Galofre.
